I am Associate Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt
University and Associate Director of the Latin American Public
Opinion Project. My research interests include comparative political behavior, political parties and partisanship, democratic representation,
legacies of political violence, and class and inequality.
My 2016 book, Party Brands in Crisis,
explores how the dilution of party brands eroded partisan attachments in Latin America and facilitated
the collapse of established parties. A forthcoming edited volume, Campaigns and Voters in Developing Democracies (with Virginia Oliveros and Luis Schiumerini),
examines the determinants of vote choice in developing contexts. My current research focuses on the effects of inequality, violence, and corruption on
political attitudes and vote choice, and inequalities in democratic representation around the world.
My research has appeared in American Journal of Political Science, American
Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and World Politics,
