I am a doctoral candidate in Latin American history at Columbia University in New York, NY, where I focus on the twentieth-century history of South America’s Southern Cone. My research explores the ways in which individuals and institutions across the region related to the military dictatorships of the 1960s through the 1980s, with an emphasis on state repression and those whose who opposed it.
Prior to entering Columbia I studied history and literature at Harvard (A.B. summa cum laude, 2009) and served as a Hauser Human Rights Research Fellow at the Harvard University Committee on Human Rights Studies (2009-2010) before moving to Buenos Aires, where I wrote, taught, and studied at the National University of Luján (2010-2013).
From September 2016 through February 2018, I will be based in Brazil and Argentina as I complete primary research for my doctoral dissertation, a history of state torture and its critics in the late twentieth-century Southern Cone.
