I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina and attended the Universidad del Salvador for undergrad where I studied International Relations.
Wanting to eventually join the Argentine diplomatic corps , I got my first job at the Argentine Council for International Relations, a foreign policy think tank based in Buenos Aires. As a twenty-something year old who had the energy to work countless hours for a small pay, I got to meet a few heads of state, several ministers and dozens of diplomats. But after a couple of years my desire to fight for Argentina's national interest had waned, so it was time to get back to school.
I went to the UK to get my M.A. in International Politics from the University of Exeter. There I studied under the supervision of David Armstrong, who himself was Hedley Bull's advisee, so technically, Hedley Bull is one of my grand-advisors. No. Big. Deal. After that, I moved to The Hague to intern at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court. That was an amazing experience; nothing beats the fact that you can walk down the hallway and count at least twenty different nationalities. But, it was time to get back to school, again.
In 2013 I got a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a doctoral degree in the US, so I have been in Minnesota since then. It is very cold.
In my spare time I bike, cook, eat out, restore furniture, obsess over Corgis and spoil my dog, Sonny (see his Instagram below). I just picked up golf; which was probably a terrible choice. The last thing you need when trying to write a dissertation is something that takes three hours of your day and makes you feel useless. Anyhow, wanna hit the links?
