In 2008-09, I was a Fulbright Scholar in Mexico City, studying US-Mexico cooperation in the drug war with the Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Penales. Prior to that, I worked and studied in Colombia, Bosnia and England, focusing on drug policy, human rights and prison reform. I’m currently in my first year of law school in Cambridge, MA.
You can find an article of mine on illegal arms trafficking here (in Spanish). A longer piece regarding evaluation of the Mérida Initiative, published in the July 2009 issue of Iter Criminis, is available here (also in Spanish).
