I’m an associate professor of Political Science and Latin American Studies at the University of Arizona. My research interests focus on representation, democratization, and institutional stability and change in Latin America.
My work is informed a great deal by the time I spend in Latin America and the relationships I have cultivated with friends and colleagues in the region. I have carried out extensive fieldwork in Peru, Venezuela, and Bolivia, and have also lived and researched in many others countries in Latin America, including Brazil, Argentina, and Chile. These experiences have made me a better researcher and a better political scientist. They have also been spectacularly fun.
