About me:

I’m a PhD candidate in political science at Columbia University. In my dissertation, I study how long-term criminal violence affects communication patterns of political parties and the electoral appeal of anti-crime policies. I have also done research on vaccine hesitancy in Latin America, vaccine diplomacy, and government transparency.

Prior to graduate school, I worked at the MIT Poverty Action Lab in Santiago, Chile and have conducted fieldwork in El Salvador, Colombia, and Peru.
