Sebastian Daza

Lost somewhere in Santiago, Chile

I’m a sociologist, demographer, and data scientist studying health disparities, the criminal justice system’s consequences for health and social integration, and the link between health inequalities and epigenetics.

I rely on statistical and computational methods in my research, emphasizing data science, and agent-based modeling.

I received my PhD in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently I am working as a Senior Researcher at the project ECHO with Alberto Palloni.

I received my Bachelors and Masters in Sociology from the Catholic University of Chile, where I still collaborate with the Center for the Study of Justice and Society.


Oct 15, 2020 We wrote a Sociology of Development Policy Brief: Mass Incarceration as a Factor in the US Mortality Disadvantage. Please, check it out :wink:!
Dec 18, 2019 I started a new position as Senior Researcher at the IEGD in Madrid, to work on the project ECHO with Alberto Palloni.
