Summary: I graduated from Cambridge in July 2012. I am currently taking a year off to teach English in Costa Rica before beginning a PhD in Political Science.
Latin American Studies
Employment: English Instructor : Pro Language
The MPhil in Latin American Studies has given me the opportunity to combine two of my strongest passions. After spending two summers in Latin America teaching English and conducting research, I developed a strong interest in the region's political systems. More recently, I have developed a passion for public opinion research and how it affects state-society relations. As part of my dissertation, I will use public opinion data to study perceptions of democracy among indigenous groups in Ecuador. In the future, I hope to continue developing these two interests by pursuing a PhD in political science with a focus on Latin American political behavior.
