I am an assistant professor at Emory University. For Spring 2023, I was a visiting fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. My research interests are comparative politics, public policy, housing policy, elections, and misinformation.

I examine the causes on nonstate welfare provision, the consequences of public policies, specifically housing policy, on political behavior, elections, and misinformation. My teaching focuses on Latin American politics, public policy, and research methods. I use a multi-method approach with an emphasis in causal inference.

My research has been published at American Journal of Political Science, British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, Latin American Research Review, World Politics, among other outlets.

My research has received awards or honorable mentions by the American Political Science Association, APSA’s Public Policy Section, Latin American American Studies Association’s Brazil Section, Red para el Estudio de la Economía Política de América Latina (REPAL), and Yale’s Department of Political Science. I have also received funding from Facebook, MIT Gov/Lab, EGAP LatAm, SciBR, CNPq, Yale’s ISPS and MacMillan Center, IPEA, among others.
