I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Vanderbilt University. My research interests include comparative political behavior, latin american politics, and research methods.
My dissertation focuses on how the configuration of electoral choices conditions mass atittudes and behavior with a special focus on Latin America and Brazil. As part of my dissertation, I utilize electoral and survey data from over 100 countries and municipal-level electoral data from Brazil and Colombia.
Aside from my dissertation, I have conducted research on a variety of political behavior topics including political tolerance, crime victimization, and protest participation. As a researcher, I am affiliated to the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP).
