Research

My research focuses on the limitations on democratic citizenship in Latin America, in particular on the threats to the exercise of political and civil rights in cases of mass-scale violence. My work lies at the intersection of studies of criminal and political violence, criminal governance, and political institutions. It employs multiple methods: experimental, quantitative analysis with observational data, and case studies based on extensive fieldwork.
