I’m a writer, researcher, and speaker on human rights and criminal justice. As an international development professional, I also consult with organizations on strategic planning, policy planning, research methods, program evaluation, and more.

I have ten years+ experience in government, multilateral, and nonprofit organizations, including the Inter-American Development Bank and the Government of Canada. My areas of specialization include security sector reform, corrections, community violence prevention, and post-conflict governance issues in Latin America and the Caribbean. I am currently completing my PhD in criminal justice at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY) in New York City.

I have deep experience in project management, fundraising and proposal development, gender-based analysis, and monitoring and evaluation. I speak fluent Spanish and French and have extensive international fieldwork experience.
