Hernán Flom

Welcome to my website!

I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Trinity College

My research focuses on policing, illicit markets, and criminal violence. My book manuscript (forthcoming at Cambridge University Press) explains how police informally regulate urban drug markets in Latin America through corruption and violence. 

I obtained my PhD in Political Science from UC Berkeley (2016). During 2016-17, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies of the University of Notre Dame.

Between June 2017 and December 2019, I worked in the National Ministry of Security of Argentina. I also taught at the Masters in Criminology and Citizen Security Program of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), the Universidad Nacional de San Martín (UNSAM) and the Masters of International Studies at Universidad Torcuato di Tella (UTDT).

I have also worked as a consultant on citizen security for the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Organization of American States (OAS), among other institutions.
