I am second year Ph.D. student with concentrations in the areas of comparative politics and political theory. My research interests focus on constitutional founding, judicial politics, and the relationship between social movements, law, and social change in Latin America. I am particularly interested in the constitutional changes that took place in Colombia, Bolivia, and Ecuador during the last three decades, and its connection with democratization processes, and conflicts over the meaning, scope, and strategies of economic development.
