My research and teaching revolve around understanding capitalist money as an institution with hierarchical and disciplining effects on the global periphery. My approach combines two disciplinary perspectives: economic sociology and international political economy. 

My research seeks to understand how contemporary capitalist money works and the effects of global monetary dynamics on the financial periphery, especially in the Latin American region. Over the years, I have researched various topics, including how monetary instability erodes public trust in a currency and how distrust limits the ability of economic officials and central bankers to implement stabilization policies. I have also studied the relationship between financial subordination and high inflation.

My most recent work explores how the digitalization of payments and the transition to a cashless society gives rise to an increasingly pluralistic and complex monetary world. My findings show how this transformation fosters the creation of new forms of money, from cryptocurrencies issued by private agents to a growing number of currencies issued by central banks worldwide. At the same time, I argue that the cashless revolution is profoundly transforming our financial architecture, empowering private firms, thus further deepening subordination and inequality in the financial periphery. 

Before joining Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany), I was a doctoral candidate and a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne (Germany). I am also a research associate at the Escuela Interdisciplinaria de Altos Estudios Sociales, Buenos Aires (Argentina).
