I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science and a Garza PhD Fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame. I am co-chair of the Public Opinion and Elections Working Group and coordinator of the Mexico Working Group at the Kellogg Institute. I specialize in comparative political behavior with a special focus in Latin America. My research interests include survey research, public opinion and voting behavior; specifically, how ideology and religious values shape political attitudes, and the role of campaigns, mobilization and clientelism in voting behavior. My dissertation studies how and when campaigns influence electoral behavior; specifically, I seek to understand why do campaigns seem to matter in some contexts but not in others.
