M.A. Candidate – Class of 2019

I grew up in an international environment with a German father and a Peruvian mother with Irish and Italian ancestors, and was educated in a bicultural school in Peru. Given my multicultural background, I found exploring the world, discovering diverse cultures, and observing the interaction between global players exceedingly fascinating. I moved to England to pursue a BSc (Hons) in Politics and International Relations at the University of Bath. Throughout my studies, I actively participated in Model United Nations (MUN) and organized MUN conferences across three continents. I also had the opportunity to intern at the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union and at the Permanent Mission of Peru to the United Nations. These experiences deepened my love for cultures and bolstered my interest in understanding global processes. The M.A. in Global Thought will give me the chance to examine contemporary global phenomena through numerous lenses. This knowledge is essential for my career as, following my studies, I hope to work for an international organization and help our international society overcome and reach consensus on central topics that affect thousands of people around the globe every day.

Research Interests

I focused my undergraduate thesis on the challenges that prevent cohesion in contemporary humanitarian intervention operations and recommended methods on how the international community can overcome these problems by examining the United Nations Mission in South Sudan. Throughout my M.A., I would like to concentrate my research on global governance and explore further factors that hinder international cooperation within international organizations, especially within the United Nations. The objective of my research is to develop methods in which global cooperation can be strengthened.
