My other research focuses on the impact of civic education interventions in developing countries and post-conflict societies. Currently, I am a researcher for the West Africa Impact Evaluation Project at the University of Pittsburgh and I am working on project studying the effects of an information campaign on decentralization in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked at the Institute for Regional Studies of the Californias at San Diego State University, collaborated with Emeritus Professor Brian Loveman on a project on human rights, rule of law, and judicial reform in Latin America, and served as deputy director of immigration enforcement in Baja California for Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Migración. I graduated with a M.A. in Latin American Studies from San Diego State University in 2008 and with a Bachelor of Laws from Universidad Anáhuac (Mexico) in 2002.
