He is currently interested in exploring the relationship between Latin America and the United States during the Cold War, trying to understand not only the conflicts, but also the confluence of projects and ideals during this period. His dissertation examines the case of the Nicaraguan Revolution reevaluating the importance of transnational links between states, multilateral organisms and non-state actors to understand the end of the Cold War in Latin America, and the construction of a new international paradigm in the Americas.
