In my consulting work I combine academic expertise and creative research methods to provide clients with straightforward and thoughtful analysis. Drawing on over 15 years of professional experience studying Latin America, I provide in-depth regional knowledge on policy issues including democracy, corruption, violence, and human rights.
My work emphasizes clear writing, meticulous research utilizing a range of sources, and diverse mapping and data visualization techniques. With a background as an educator, I am skilled at communicating complex ideas to audiences of non-experts and experts alike.
Previous projects have included both desk and field-based work, and my approach is highly adaptable. Examples of previous work includes providing the Center for Civilians in Conflict expert research and analysis during the development of a new Latin America program and guiding fieldwork on the cross-border brewing industry for the Refugee Investment Network.
