I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at Columbia University, and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. I work on the contemporary and historical political economy of Latin America and the United States. My dissertation studies the legacies of informal administration associated with agrarian reform for contemporary violence in rural Mexico. 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.
