I  am Professor of Political Science, specializing in Political Theory, at Rollins College. I  obtained my PhD from Columbia University in 2009, and my BA from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2001. My research is in democratic theory and the ethics of participation, with an emphasis on the morality of cooperative action in democracies. I am also interested in-- and have worked extensively on-- issues of  labor and welfare state political theory.​ These are my books and current book projects:

Democracy and Collective Ills: A Basis for Citizen Action (in progress)

Dialogues in Democracy: A Response to the Critics (in progress, under contract)

The Duty to Vote (Oxford University Press, 2019)

Democracy, Rationality and Justice: The Legacy of Jon Elster, co-editor (Cambridge University Press, 2014)
