Overview

I'm a Fulbright scholar from Mexico City and I just graduated with an M.A. in International Relations from Yale University, where I focused on subjects to do with climate change and China's rise as a global power. I have experience working in China and in the Mexican government (both in the Foreign Relations Secretariat and in ex President Felipe Calderon's Diplomatic Counseling Office). I speak Mandarin, Spanish and Portuguese and I'm most interested in areas to do with sustainable development and environmental studies.
