My research focuses on how the forces of globalization affect development outcomes in Latin America and across the Global South. I am currently working on a book project that examines how exposure to international trade altered patterns of state development across Latin America by reshaping the distribution of income within agrarian societies.
I am an Assistant Professor of Practice at The Ohio State University. Previously, I held postdoctoral fellowships at Princeton University and Tulane. I received a Ph.D. in Government from Cornell University in 2014.
Before beginning my doctoral studies at Cornell I served as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer in Bolivia from 2004-2006.
