Hello and welcome!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). I am also a member of the Latin American Studies Program at the same university.

I work in the fields of comparative politics, political psychology, and research methods. My research focuses on how people's views about gender relations affect how they vote, think, and conceive the political process. Also, I study these phenomena from a comparative perspective, with a special focus on Brazil and Latin America. As part of my research, I have collected experimental and survey data in Brazil, Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, and United States. I also utilize other available comparative survey data from more than 100 countries in my research.
