Her special areas of research include charismatic authority, populism and political change in the Latin American context, with a special interest in Subcomandante Marcos and the Zapatista Movement. Her book on this topic published by Lynn Rienner in 2010 was entitled Political Leadership in Zapatista Mexico: Marcos, Celebrity, and Charismatic Authority. She is currently working on various papers that investigate Hugo Chávez’s brand of populism, the role of intellectuals in revolutions, and the use of historical figures by populist leaders.
