I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology in the School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University in Tempe. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from UCLA and B.A. in Peace and Conflict Studies from UC Berkeley.
I am a sociologist of race and ethnicity, specializing in racial and ethnic categorization, stratification and immigration. My work offers critical insight into how legacies of colonization and immigration shape inequalities among Latinx communities in the United States. My work has been published in Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, and Race and Social Problems.
