Welcome to my website! I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and Sociology at Murray State University. I study International Relations and Comparative Politics, focusing my research on issues related to human rights, non-state actors, and Latin American politics. My particular interest is how post-conflict and post-authoritarian regimes use transitional justice mechanisms to incorporate marginalized populations. I also have a great interest in social movements within Latin America. For more information please see my CV and research interests. Please also see my teaching section for syllabi and student evaluations.
