I came to the LAC having studied a B.A. in Political Science and Public Administration in Mexico, where I also worked as a researcher and teacher before starting an MPhil in Latin American Studies. I graduated in 2006 and moved on to a DPhil in Sociology, also at Oxford, which I hope to complete in 2010.
The general topics I am interested in are: crime (specifically kidnapping), the rule of law, the Mexican justice system and its challenges and the mechanisms people use to protect themselves from crime when their government fails to do so. Recently I have also been involved in research projects in Mexico, mostly on crime and justice system analysis and reform, as well as with the everyday academic activities of my Department. My time at the LAC was very enjoyable, I learned a lot and I was very well supervised
