I have extensive experience in teaching seminars and giving some lecture classes at German universities for BA and MA levels, in English, German and Spanish. Thematic foci of my teaching are democratic theory, political institutions, government systems, and Latin American, European, German, and US politics.

I also have extensive experience in working with professionals, leading seminars performing country analysis of Bolivia.


For a number of years I have been author and editor of the Bolivia Portal at the German Development Agency’s (GIZ) country information portal. The site is in German.


Since 2003, I have authored a blog (MABBlog) about Bolivia’s politics, economy and society. The site started as a selfish exercise to compile information, in English, on Bolivia’s interesting political affairs and developments. Believe it or not, back then there was not much information online about the country in the English language. Meanwhile, the blog has acquired a steady stream of visitors and readers, some of whom started following the blog since it started.

Social Media

I have extensive experience of using social media within the social sciences throughout my academic career and my personal experience. Recently I have designed a couple of seminars on the use of these media for academic purposes which have covered the following topics:

  • Efficient management of Facebook and Twitter feeds
  • Efficient management of RSS feeds and readers
  • Creation, design and maintenance of blogs and websites for personal use (multi-author too)
  • Promotion and dissemination of personal academic work
  • Usage of social media in the class room
  • Bibliography management systems
  • Online promotion and content generation for academic events
  • Collection and curating of existing academic work
  • Combination of any of the above mentioned methods to enhance results…
