I am Assistant Professor in Taxation at the Department of Management Control and Information Systems, University of Chile. Previously, I held a lectureship position (Assistant professor) in the Department of Accounting, University of Birmingham, UK. Before my academic career, I worked for Big 4 firms in the Tax and Legal Services department, at PriceWaterhouseCoopers Chile; and, IT audits, at Deloitte Chile.
I hold a Ph.D in Taxation from the University of Exeter, UK, under the supervision of Professor Lynne Oats; and a Master's in Taxation and a Bachelor in Information Systems and Management Control, both from the University of Chile. My research interests span all areas of tax policy and practice from political, institutional, organisational and social perspectives. Nowadays, I am deeply interested in the recruitment of agents into powerful groups and the manners by which these agents exercise their powers in the tax field, all theoretically informed by the political sociology of Pierre Bourdieu. Part of this work has appeared in The British Accounting Review, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, and The Journal of Tax Administration.
I have taught taxation in various geographical settings, including Chile, United Kingdom, Singapore and Dubai.
Besides academia, I enjoy travelling and spending time with my beautiful dog called Liam.
