Hello! I am a political scientist and recently completed a PhD in Government at the University of Essex, United Kingdom. I like to write on a variety of subjects but my particular interests are in U.S. politics/policy, Democracy, social identity and collective action. My PhD research focused on how ethnic heterogeneity affect collective action of the poor and the effectiveness of democratic governments on poverty alleviation.
In my spare time, I like playing the guitar, walking, reading, taking naps, and traveling.
