I'm a Political Science PhD candidate at Boston University. I received my B.A. in Political Science from Simmons College in 2013 and entered the PhD program at Boston University that same year.
My current research focuses on the political causes and consequences of criminal violence in Central America. More broadly, my research interests include violence, citizen security, corruption, organized crime, and democratization throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
In Fall 2020, I will be joining the Political Science Department at the University of Nevada - Reno as an Assistant Professor and offering classes on human security and Latin American politics.
