Welcome! I'm a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Southern California (USC). I also have an M.A. in Economics (USC) and an M.A. in Chinese Studies (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor). Before starting my Ph.D., I worked in public and private organizations, and researched trade and investment exchanges between Peru, the United States, and China.
I focus on the fields of International Political Economy and Comparative Politics. I examine patterns of economic development and growth in emerging economies and developing countries. I’m also interested in analyzing the factors that affect trade and investment policy-making as well as performance. I use the relationship between China and Latin America as my main setting.
Aside from academics, I enjoy staying active by hiking, doing yoga, pilates, and aerial silks.
I use this site for communication purposes. If you need more information about my work or current projects, please feel free to send me a message. Thank you!
