I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Texas A&M University. I am interested in when and how women access elected and appointed positions, as well as how a politician's gender shapes their strategic behavior. Additionally, I have a general interest in quality of governance as it relates to corruption, trust, and representation, with a focus in Latin America. My dissertation combines these streams of research by studying how gender affects a politicians strategic choice to prioritize stereotypically feminine policy agendas and oversight, a possible tool against corruption.
