I am interested in finding new ways to look at historical problems, particularly those relating to Latin America in the 19th and 20th century. During my M.A. program I developed a research interest in the relationship between international infrastructure projects and cities.  Examining the ways in which geopolitical debates played out on a local level produced insights about both global and local histories.
