Research Assistant Professor

Lingnan University


I’m a Research Assistant Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at Lingnan University, Hong Kong. From August 2023, I will continue my career as an TT Assistant Professor in the same department. I’m proud of saying that I have studied in three cultures. They define not only what I am as a researcher, but also as a person. In Chile, I discovered the passion for what I am doing and I adquired a strong background in quantitative methods. In the Netherlands, I understood the relevance of the theory for social research and methods theoretically driven as the way for doing high impact research. Today, Hong Kong is my intellectual, social, and cultural environment, where Western and Eastern scholastic traditions meet. The credibility of quantitative analyses is the new ingredient as well as the ambition to produce cutting-edge knowledge.
