  • Since 2001 I have been working as a researcher and post-graduate profesor at the Latin american faculty for social sciences (FLACSO), at Quito (Ecuador). FLACSO is an international organization created by UNESCO in 1957.

    I own a Doctor Degree in Sociology from the University of Paris 3-Sorbonne Nouvelle, and a post-doctoral degree in political science (in french, Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches) from the Institute of Political Studies at Paris (Sciences-Po).

    My current research deals with the impact of resource nationalism on accountability in oil and gas exporting countries.
    Among other books, I have published "El Precio del petróleo" (2003, reprinted in 2007), "Petropolítica" (2010, also available in french), "Gaz et pétrole en Amazonie" (2011) and "Análisis de políticas publicas: Conceptos, teorías y métodos" (2015).
