My time at UT Austin has consisted of taking part in community-based development projects in Mexico. I have been an active participant in human rights advocacy in Panama and Argentina. I have served on the Outstanding Employee Committee and the Vice-President of Research Search Committee which speaks volumes to my experience in being able to effectively hire and retain key contributors a world class institution of Higher Education. As result of the Latin American Studies program, I have developed a wealth of knowledge in the analysis of social, economic and political situations in Latin America for the development of community-based projects. Last, I am particularly concerned with the incorporation of local-knowledge for the crafting of public policy.
