Benjamin Gonzalez Cueto is a 2022 Digital Research Associate with GQR, where he provides research and insight into political conversations and disinformation narratives across the US, and helps map and respond to the impact of these conversations. Prior to joining GQR, Benjamin interned with PEN America where he provided targeted research and policy recommendations regarding free expression and human rights cases in the US and globally.
Benjamin graduated in 2021 with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he also studied journalism and Latin American history, and investigated human rights violations in Latin America.
When not at work, you can find Benjamin stuck in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s listening to music from his native Argentina, and watching an unhealthy amount of soccer and basketball while he sips on yerba mate.
