In the last few years, my research has focused on the way information technologies affect governance and the political process—my 2011 book, The Reinvention of Politics: Obama, the Internet and the New Public Sphere, focuses on this subject. It was published in Spain by Ediciones Península; in Uruguay, Colombia and Venezuela by Ediciones Puntocero; and in Argentina, Chile and Mexico by Editorial Planeta.
My background includes a master in Security Studies at King’s College London and in Journalism at El País newspaper in Madrid. Since 2006, I have been writing Route 66, a weekly column on America and its impact on world affairs.
I am an associate at the Foreign Policy Observatory at Fundacación Alternativas (Madrid). During 2009-2010 I worked with Personal Democracy Forum, an organization based in New York that promotes the use of information technologies in government.
I divide my time between Washington and Madrid.
