I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Providence College. My research focuses on resource extraction, radical democracy, social movements, and the left in Latin America. These themes are explored in my book, Resource Radicals: From Petro-Nationalism to Post-Extractivism in Ecuador (under contract from Duke University Press), as well as in peer-reviewed articles in Perspectives on Politics, Cultural Studies, and World Politics, and essays that have appeared in N+1, Dissent, Jacobin, In These Times, and NACLA.
Previously, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies (University of Notre Dame), and held a one-year appointment as a visiting scholar at the Facultad de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO) in Quito. I received my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Pennsylvania in 2014, and my B.A. from Reed College in 2006.
