Hello! This is my website, where you can find information about my research, engagement, and teaching. Thanks for visiting.
My research focuses on public management, mainly studying public servants’ attitudes and behaviour and how they are affected by civil service reforms, management practices, and future-of-work trends. Also, I look at the effectiveness of performance management regimes and the use of performance information in the public sector. I teach courses on public management and policy, research methods, applied statistics, and performance management.
My research projects regularly involve partnerships with governments and international organisations such as the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNICEF. They have translated into numerous policy publications and opinion articles.
I completed my PhD in Public Administration at the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers University (as Fulbright Fellow) and hold an MA in Management and Public Policy and a BSc in Industrial Engineering from the University of Chile.
Before taking up my current role, I was Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Government at the University of Chile. Previously, I was Research Director of the Centre for Public Systems at the University of Chile’s Industrial Engineering Department, and Assistant Director of the National Center for Public Performance at Rutgers. I also served as a Board Member of the Chilean Society of Public Policy.
My research has been published by or is forthcoming in Oxford Review of Economic Policy, International Public Management Journal, Review of Public Personnel Administration, Revista del CLAD Reforma y Democracia, the Inter-American Development Bank, and UNICEF-Chile.
