I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at MIT. My current research focuses on the political consequences of violence, including civil wars and crime. I recently completed my dissertation, which is about public security and vigilantism in the wake of the Guatemalan civil war, and my article on crime victimization and political participation was published in the American Political Science Review in 2012.

Thank you for visiting, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
