I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at Columbia University, and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. I study the contemporary and historical political economy of violence, property rights, and administration in Latin America and the United States. Prior to graduate school, I worked with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace as a James C. Gaither Junior Fellow.

My work is published in the Annual Review of Political Science, npj Vaccines, PLoS ONE, PS: Political Science & Politics, and the Washington Post.
