Hello! I’m a political communication researcher focused on understanding how human and algorithmic information curation shape our shared political realities.
Currently, I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Amsterdam and part of the Algorithmic Society consortium. I hold a PhD in communication science from the Institute of Communication and Media Studies at the University of Bern, in Switzerland. Originally from the Dominican Republic, I did my BA in International Relations at the ITESM in Mexico, and obtained my MSc in Political Science at the University of Amsterdam.
My research focuses on political information flows in a digital age and its effects on political attitudes. In these projects, I make use of computational methodologies to explore web behaviour, use of algorithmic intermediaries to news (such as social media and search engines), and to conduct large-scale automated content analyses through text-as-data approaches.
I classify my research into three main branches:
