Bio: 

I am a student of Comparative Politics and Political Theory. My research interests are broadly located at the intersection of resistance, globalization, and development, with a particular interest in Guatemala. My aim is to understand what types of political action (broadly understood) globalization engenders and what forms it takes. I use ethnographic methods as well as network mapping to study how groups understand and interact with economic, cultural, and political transnational flows including, but not limited to, capital, aid, migration, and tourism.
