Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania and a faculty affiliate at the Center for Latin American and Latinx Studies. My research uses text and statistical analysis to better understand authoritarian repression and censorship, particularly in Latin America and Spain. My academic work has appeared in or is forthcoming at The American Political Science Review, The Journal of Politics, and Comparative Political Studies.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow with Princeton's Empirical Studies of Conflict Project and the International Crisis Group. I received my PhD in Political Science from Stanford University, where I was a Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellow, a Dissertation Fellow at the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences, a fellow at the Center for Ethics in Society, and a fellow at the Stanford Center for International Conflict and Negotiation.
