Research Statement

My research revolves around substantive interests in identity, inequality, and citizenship, with a regional focus on Latin America. Broadly, I am interested in the processes of identity politicization, the causes and consequences of inequality, and how these shape the quality and exercise of citizenship. In my published an on-going research, I rely on quantitative and qualitative methods to make theoretical and empirical contributions to these areas of study.
