About me

I am an Assistant Professor of Latin American Political Economy at University College London and a member of the UCL-Institute of the Americas. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2014.

My research focuses business and taxation, political finance and lobbying regulation, economic development, and electoral participation in Latin America. My research has appeared in Comparative Political Studies, Electoral Studies, Political Studies, and the American Journal of Public Health, among others.

I am the convenor of the UK Political Studies Association’s Specialist Group on Latin American Politics and the Latin American Political Economy Seminar Series at the UCL-Institute of the Americas.
