Ingrid’s research focuses on the political economy of Latin America, especially Mexico and Argentina. She has written on the relationship between informality and corruption, and about the long-run relationship between wages, well-being, and inequality.
In collaboration with Oxfam Mexico and the magazine Chilango, she designed and implemented a new mixed-methods approach to multidimensional inequality in Mexico City.
She is currently doing fieldwork on the link between income inequality and social reproduction arrangements in Buenos Aires. Her book Vendors' Capitalism: A Political Economy of Public Markets in Mexico City was published by Stanford University Press in 2021.
Ingrid welcomes applications on the political economy of Latin America in historical perspective, in particular (though not exclusively) related to inequality, informality, and care and domestic work.
