Affiliations

I am a PhD student whose main areas of interests involve the intertwining of the sport, culture, and politics with special emphasize on Latin America. I am especially interested in the political role that sport has in Latin America and around the world in creating a national culture and group identity.

I am also interested in learning a variety of methods to best answer the questions I have. Methods that I have used in the past include content analysis, ethnography, interviewing, and quantitative methods.
