I am a Sociologist and a teacher who currently works with students at the Universidad Centroamericana “José Simeón Cañas.” I am interested in documenting the harmful effects of power, and our resilience to those harmful effects.

I have studied risk behavior, sexual violence, and health in Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, and the United States. I am authored on 30 peer reviewed articles and two book chapters concerning these topics.

In my personal life I like to surf ocean waves, listen to stories, and hang out with dogs.
