About Me

I am a  Senior  Researcher  at  the  CONICET  (National  Scientific  and  Technical Research  Council) and an Assistant Professor at Master’s Degree Program in Development Economics, Universidad Nacional de San Martin, Buenos Aires, Argentina. I hold an International PhD in Political Economy from the Universities of Macerata (Ita); Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne; Paris X-Nanterre (Fra); Erfurt (Ger); Zaragoza (Spa); Politecnica delle Marche; Roma 2-Tor Vergata (Ita) and a post-doc from the University of Salento, Italy. I have been a visiting scholar at the Université Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, New School for Social Research (New York), University of Macerata (Italy) and Universidad de Buenos Aires (Argentina).  My current research issues at CONICET (“Facing the European crisis: lessons from and for the Argentinian case”; “Economic and Political Downturns in Latin America: the new stage of a polymorphic crisis”) draw on over ten years of case studying related to Latin American and European financial crises, from both a theoretical and an empirical angle. Furthermore, I published several works in the History of Political Economy in highly ranked and well-established journals (Cambridge Journal of Economics; European Journal of the History of Economic Thought) dealing with crisis, instability, interwar political economy, Oskar Lange’s and Michal Kalecki’s works. I have also written an entry on the socialist calculation debate for the New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics.
