Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in the department of Political Science at Columbia University, and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. My research focuses on state and non-state regulation of violence and property rights, with a regional specialization 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 for the Program on Democracy and Rule of Law.

My work has been published by the Annual Review of Political Science and the Washington Post.
