I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology in Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University. 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 identification, immigration, stratification, and Latinxs. My research agenda offers insight into how historical and regional context shapes people’s understandings of identity and race. This is key to uncovering how racism plays out across various landscapes and how groups are racialized in distinct ways but often in comparison to one another. My work has been published in the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Race and Social Problems, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, Sociological Inquiry and Social Problems.
