My research looks at questions of governance, citizenship, and violence in urbanizing Latin America through various methodologies, including fieldwork, research on social media platforms, and community surveys. My dissertation examined the possibilities for social and political action in Rio de Janeiro's conflict zones--poor neighborhoods under the threat of violence from drug traffickers and the state's military police. I am currently coordinating a pilot project in the City of God, a low-income neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, that employs a participatory action research approach to document development, security, and social resilience.
