I am a Public Policy Ph.D. candidate at the Paul H. O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the Department of Political Science. I study how developing country municipalities, civil society organizations, and political actors collaborate (or not) for service delivery. My dissertation engages with research on administrative capacity, non-state service provision, and coproduction and collaborative governance in the fields of public administration and comparative politics, and tries to answer this overarching puzzle: Why are some local governments failing at managing their waste while other similar ones are doing a better job? And, why are some less successful at disposing of their waste than at keeping their streets clean? The central contribution is to expand our understanding of the role that different levels of municipal administrative capacity and organized civil society involvement have, first, on the performance of simple and complex services and, second, on the differential outcomes it produces between them. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked in multiple public sector organizations in Peru, managed public sector consulting projects at Deloitte also in Peru, and was a consultant at the World Bank in Washington, DC. I have a B.A. in Political Science from St. Olaf College in Minnesota and a Master of Public Policy from the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University.
