I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Temple University, and a Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program Scholar at The California State University. I also serve as a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at California State University, Stanislaus. Previously, I was an Affiliated Researcher at the Instituto de Estudios Peruanos where I carried out extensive fieldwork from 2013-7.

I study comparative politics, international relations, terrorism, and political violence, with a particular focus on Latin America. When I am not reading, writing, or teaching, you can find me cleaning, running, or cheering on the San Francisco Giants.

Starting fall 2018, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at California State University, Fresno.
