I am an assistant professor (profesor investigador titular, SNI II) at CIDE in Mexico City. I received my PhD in political science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012.

My research often examines organizational dynamics of violence. Articles are published or forthcoming in Journal of Politics, International Studies Quarterly, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Journal of Peace Research, Conflict Management and Peace Science, and Terrorism and Political Violence. You can see my Google Scholar page here.

Before college, I was enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps infantry for four years.

Have a nice day.
