Samuel Leon (Year 1)
I was born and raised in Mexico City. I am a graduate of Politics and Public Administration of the Universidad Iberoamericana. I have an extensive career in the public sector; I have worked in the Mexican federal government´s social security sector, as an advisor for the Mexican Senate on two occasions, in the tourism sector, and in the Federal Electricity Commission (Mexico´s former publicly-owned electricity monopoly). I have also had experience as a public security and energy analyst in Mexico´s non-governmental sector. In my free time, I love to run and practise boxing. I am a huge fan of cinema, modern art, a foodie and an avid concert goer. I am looking forward to doing my research on Mexico´s energy sector or the challenges the country is facing regarding public security, and I am deeply interested in how academic research can influence public policy.
