​I am a PhD candidate in Political Science and Research Associate at the Center on the Politics of Development
​at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests include traditional institutions, political mobilization, the political economy of rural development, and methods for causal inference.

My dissertation project will investigate the intersection of traditional and state institutions in rural Mexico and Peru.

Prior to coming to Berkeley, I completed a Master's in Latin American Studies at the University of Cambridge as a Gates-Cambridge scholar. I also hold a B.A. in Political Science and History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I studied as a Morehead-Cain scholar.
