My name is Zachary Avis and I am currently a sophomore at American University. I am pursuing dual degrees in International Studies and Economics, with minors in German and Accounting. My current research project reflects my interest in understanding different methods of pushback Latin and Central American states show towards U.S. influenced illicit drug eradication policies and how best to categorize each country based on the level of pushback seen. Additionally, I am interested in research the intersection of government and business, and the regulatory relationships between the two.
