I’m a political science PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh, focusing on comparative political behavior with a regional focus on Latin America. My dissertation focuses on the use of social media for electoral campaigning by political parties in developing countries, particularly in Central America. I have an an MA from the University of Pittsburgh and received my undergraduate degree from the University of Costa Rica. My broader research agenda has focused on protest politics and party competition. Methods-wise, I am interested in the use of statistical and data science methods, including text as data, spatial and time-series econometrics, hierarchichal models and machine learning. My work has been published in Latin American, Spanish, and American journals, including Latin American Politics and Society.
