Research Interest: My interests lie in Latin American politics, particularly regarding Bolivia’s political processes, elections, political polarization, and foreign relations with the US and China. My junior paper analyzed Bolivian perspectives of the US. During Summer ’23, I researched Bolivian polarization and dialogue spaces, as well as the Bolivia-China lithium extraction deals at the US Institute of Peace. My senior thesis will be on similar topics.
