Thank you for visiting my website.

I am an Assistant Professor of Latino & Caribbean Studies and a Faculty Affiliate of the Criminal Justice Program at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Prior to joining the Rutgers community, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at George Washington University, where I also served as the Interim Director of the GW Law & Society Minor. While living in Washington, D.C., I was a contracted researcher at the National Institute of Justice, contributing to the transnational organized crime portfolio. Projects in this area include grant-funded collaborations studying the Colombian National Police, the Honduran National Police, and the transnational capacity of MS-13 in the United States and El Salvador. I will serve as the inaugural Managing Editor for the Journal of White Collar and Corporate Crime - a forthcoming (2020) SAGE journal affiliated with the newly created division in the American Society of Criminology.
