His experience strengthened his knowledge and after completing a graduate program at the University of Ohio in the United States, he became a research professor at FLACSO Ecuador. He has extensive knowledge in populism and democratic governance. These subjects led him to deepen his concern about political culture and regional movements on which he worked, as part of his doctoral research at the University of Salamanca in Spain.
