Research Interests:

 

My main research interest remains in taxation and state capacity during the early modern era, especially during the 16th and 17th centuries. I am particularly interested in the history of the Spanish empire in Europe, America, and Asia. I believe that research on these issues is key to understanding the subsequent development of the institutional frameworks in Latin America. In the short term, I intend to refine my Ph.D. thesis text to prepare it for publication as a book. In the medium term, I will be continuing the research on the tax system in Latin America, especially for the second half of the seventeenth century. I will also be addressing issues such as the debt policy of the Spanish Empire in America. Furthermore, I will continue my research on mining production and commercial networks in the early modern era.

I am also particularly interested in developing computer databases, geographic information systems, and graphical interfaces to analyze historical information. In recent years I have learned to program in SQL and Python to process, order, and explore the empirical data generated by my research. I will continue to advance in the systematization and consolidation of data, for my objective is that this information will be easily accessible to all those interested in the subject.
In the past, I have investigated the mining production of San Luis Potosí during the seventeenth century. Also, the commercial circulation from these mines in New Spain to the Pacific and the Atlantic. I have conducted research that applies certain data science elements to the study of history through Social Network Analysis (ARS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
I have participated in research groups in Mexico and Spain as a research assistant. I am entirely familiar with the researcher's work, both in small groups and in projects of considerable magnitude. In the same way, I have taught classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels as an assistant professor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
