Bio


Drawing on a 22-year academic career, I apply my expert knowledge of geographical analysis techniques to design and implement innovative public policies and private-sector initiatives in areas including epidemiology, public health, economics, the environmental sciences, political science, and interdisciplinary spaces where these fields overlap.

I have successfully combined diverse interest in politics, publishing, and research and developed a network of academic and business connections that spans Latin America, the United States, and the United Kingdom. A passionate people manager, I have a deep interest in growing and cultivating diverse talent.
