Before joining Marymount, I received my PhD in Criminology and Public Policy from
the School of Public Affairs at American University. My research interests lay at the intersection of performance measurement of criminal justice institutions and comparative criminology, with a focus on developing countries. One strand of my research explores how criminal justice institutions and, particularly, law enforcement, perform and how efficiently they utilize their resources as well as the factors that affect their performance. In particular, I have conducted comparative research on this topic in various countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and Sub-Saharan Africa. I am also working with governments to design and evaluate the performance of their criminal justice sector to inform policy and program design that can lead to a more efficient use of public resources. Another strand of my research studies focuses on evaluating public policies in developing countries by analyzing large administrative datasets. Research areas include policing, youths, and justice system. In addition to my research interests, I have collaborative research projects in Spain, Mexico, Chile, El Salvador, Honduras, Bulgaria, and the US. […]
