I am professor and chair of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration. I am also the editor of the academic journal The Latin Americanist. My research interests include Latin American politics, U.S.-Latin American relations, and Latin American immigration to the United States. I am past president of the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies (SECOLAS).
I’ve been blogging on anything related to Latin America almost daily since 2006 on my blog Two Weeks Notice.
