I am a PhD candidate studying urban political economy, public policy, and civil society. My dissertation focuses on public service provision in Mexico City, but my research interests include state and local politics in the United States as well. I also have experience working with social media data scraped from Twitter. I have served as Head TF for "Data", and as a teaching assistant for "Foundations of Comparative Politics", as well as "US-Mexico Relations". I am happy to advise theses using quantitative and/or qualitative methods, and to talk strategy about how to get started with either of these approaches or to pursue mixed methods/interdisciplinary work. As a thesis adviser, I prioritize organization and approachability, with weekly low-stakes meetings to keep you on track and help you think critically about research design and execution.
