Beatriz is a third year Politics PhD student at Princeton University, focusing on International Relations, Political Theory, and Comparative Politics as her subfields. She began Princeton particularly interested in issues of international law, human rights, institutions, and security as they relate to normative ethics. Since then, her research interests have narrowed down to the understudied topic of humanitarian intervention in Latin America.
Beyond her academic studies, Beatriz is a fellow of Princeton’s Niehaus Center for Global Governance, she served on the Search Committee for the Dean of Access, Diversity and Inclusion (2017-18), as well as being a member of the Latino Graduate Student Association (LGSA), and a regular participant in Princeton’s Women in Political Science (PWIPS) forum.
Outside of the university, Beatriz is a mentor for Project Access, a global peer-to-peer network which connects applicants from underrepresented nationalities with current students at top institutions of higher education, who in turn provide information, feedback and support throughout the application process.
Last year, she also joined the United Nations Volunteer network (UNV), where she worked part-time providing legal and advocacy services for UN agencies in Latin America. More recently, Beatriz was selected to join the American Political Science Review team as a peer reviewer, providing feedback to manuscript authors and advice to chief editors when it comes to publication prospects in the discipline’s top journal.
