He has specialized in an original application of the anthropological structural analysis (referred the proposals of Claude Lévi-Strauss) in institutional organizations, analyzing them like systems of representations, in complex societies.

In the academic context of the Argentine social anthropology, he is a pioneer in the application of the structural analysis in farming cooperative organizations, in religious organizations, as well as in the wide field of the systems of religious representations and beliefs in general. It has also implemented the structural analysis in rites of healing, performed by catholic priests and pentecostal religious expression.
