My research focus is on the political causes and consequences of criminal justice policies and their enforcement, particularly the politics of counternarcotics in the Americas. More broadly I am interested in political economy, as well as quantitative methods and computational approaches to the social sciences.
In my spare time I enjoy books and movies. Solving puzzles also keeps me entertained: see blog or click here to be on my NYT Mini Crossword leaderboard. To stay active I love to hike and climb, as well as play soccer (I love watching soccer, too).
