I am currently a PhD candidate in the department of Political Science at Duke University with a primary focus in Security, Peace, and Conflict and a secondary focus in Political Methodology. I was a 2014-2017 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and will be a Katherine Goodman Stern Fellow at Duke University during 2018-2019.

My research and teaching interests center on political conflict. Currently, I maintain three distinct research agendas. The first considers the dynamics of public opinion in societies at war; the second explores the strategic behavior of armed actors in civil wars; the last focuses on the role of network structure in inter- and intra-state conflict. 

Raised partly in Colombia and south Florida, in my free time I love to travel, cook, and am an avid reader of fiction
