I am from Barranquilla, Colombia, and my research interests are Peace and Conflict studies, focusing on corruption and civil war processes. I studied International Relations at Universidad del Norte, and a master in Conflict Resolution at the University of Essex. I love working with communities and teaching!

On Rice:

"Rice has such a vibrant community! People are welcoming and friendly. I've made great friends here. Houston is a big city and it has so much to offer. My favourite thing about the city is all the amazing places it has to eat and to try international and local food."

On Fulbright:

"It feels like having a global family."
