Emilia holds a PhD in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), with a specialism in political economy and political methodology.

Her research focuses on the comparative political economy of policymaking and policy change.

Using qualitative and quantitative methods, she studies policymaking, under both authoritarian and democratic regimes, with a regional focus on Latin America.

In particular, she analyses how political institutions across regime types shape the extent to which citizens and interest groups influence policymaking, and how that affects public policy.

As part of this research agenda, Emilia's dissertation analyses the relationship between regime types and public policies to better understand how, and under which conditions, policy change takes place as a consequence of regime type transitions.
