About Me

My research centers around international human rights law, and particularly international human rights adjudication.  I have published on the European Court of Human Rights, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the International Criminal Court.

In addition to international human rights adjudication, I am actively conducting research on public opinion and human rights and human rights in Mexico.
