Hey there, I'm Gabe (he/him), a political scientist and Ph.D. candidate at UC Riverside. My research focuses on civil-military relations, institutions, and governance. With graduate degrees from UC Riverside and EBAPE/FGV, I bring a diverse and interdisciplinary perspective to my work.
I also have experience teaching courses on human rights, armed forces and politics, comparative politics, and globalization and development. I'm passionate about finding creative ways to connect different areas of study and bring new insights to my work.
I've published works on defense and civilian control, populism, governance, and civil society participation. As a TA at UC Riverside, I've learned how to teach complex concepts in a way that's easy to understand and engaging for students. I'm especially interested in helping students improve their lives and qualifications, as I believe this is vital to building strong institutions and robust governance.
Overall, I'm committed to making society better through my work, and I hope my research and teaching can make a positive impact.
