Research

My work encompasses three main areas of research: substantively, I am interested in understanding the drivers behind police violence and mechanisms of reform, in post-conflict and democratic settings. In a second area of research, I focus on understanding criminal organizations (gangs, mafias, cartels) and when and why they attempt to control markets and populations. 

I am also interested in mixed-methods research designs, particularly in the combination of in-depth qualitative fieldwork and experiments. To learn more about my areas of research and my published work click below.
