& Upcoming Events
Sharing my research with audiences is an important part of what I do. The conclusions of my work have many implications about contemporary issues. I routinely speak to different kinds of audiences, including academic meetings and conferences, professional groups, and the general public. For example, I have given testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security on the Mexican drug war, spoken at national and international conferences, and given talks to World Affairs Councils. I routinely speak at universities and other educational settings, in addition to many different public groups and organizations on the issues described below.
Clicking on any of the seven issues below takes you to a description of the key projects, publications, and talks/lectures I have given related to each of them. I'd enjoy learning about the needs of your group and how they can benefit from learning more in these areas.
