Thank you for visiting my website. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Florida State University.

My research and teaching interests center on comparative democratic institutions of modern Latin America, with particular regard for legislatures and courts. My published and ongoing work considers the institutional architecture of all modern democracies, including elections, executives, legislatures and courts, and has been published in the American Journal of Political Science, The Journal of Law and Courts, Political Research Quarterly, Legislative Studies Quarterly, Electoral Studies, Judicature, European Political Science Review, American Politics Research, Politics & Gender, Revista de Ciencia Política and Política y Gobierno.

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. As a Ph.D student at Washington University in St. Louis, I was a Graduate Research Associate in the Center for Empirical Research in the Law and a member of the Democratic Institutions Research Team. Prior to attending graduate school, I received my B.A. in Spanish and Latin American Studies at Gonzaga University.
