My interests lie in the intersection of relational sociology, medieval history, and political studies. My current doctoral research, "Nobility and Royal Functionaries in the Kingdom of Sicily: Social control and organization of the aristocracy in the Norman Mezzogiorno (1140-1189)," is a study of the Hauteville kings' relationships with their functionaries and nobles, especially within the context of the territorial leaderships in the mainland counties. I did my Licentiate (5-year programme) at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), in Political Sciences and Public Administration. I did also a double MA in Comparative History and Interdisciplinary Medieval Studies at the Central European University, in Budapest. I joined the University of Leeds in 2013, and I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in the School of History. I am specialised in Medieval manuscript studies, Eastern Mediterranean studies, and network analysis.
