|I am Assistant Professor of Political Science at Boston University. I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley in 2009. My research examines various aspects of electoral politics and political behavior in Latin America, including religion, campaigns, and the mass media.
My book Presidential Campaigns in Latin America: Electoral Strategies and Success Contagion is under contract with Cambridge University Press. My second book project is tentatively entitled Serving God and Man: Evangelicals and Electoral Politics in Latin America. With F. Daniel Hidalgo and Marcus Melo, I am also working on a field experiment, "Accountability and Incumbent Performance in the Brazilian Northeast."
