In 2007, Lucas Becerra obtained a degree in Economics (University of Buenos Aires). In 2011, Lucas finished his Master in International Studies (University Torcuato Di Tella) with a research project oriented to the development of new conceptual tools to understand South-South cooperation processes and asymmetrical power dynamics in order to think strategies and options for socio-economical development in middle-income countries. Since 2010, Lucas is carrying out his doctoral research under the direction of Dr. Hernán Thomas in the Institute of Science and Technology Studies (IESCT), at the National University of Quilmes.
