I am a social researcher and writer with degrees in sociology and international relations. I have worked with non-profit organisations in the UK, Ireland, Nicaragua, Cambodia and Guatemala, covering diverse areas including female empowerment, human rights, education, micro-finance, citizen participation and social policy.
I write sporadically; mainly opinion and analysis pieces on U.S. foreign policy and political issues in Latin America. I have a particular interest in the Central American region where I have lived, worked and traveled extensively.
My articles (listed here) have been published by a number of national and international media outlets and think tanks including Al Jazeera, The New Statesman, and the Council on Hemispheric Affairs.
