I am an Assistant Professor in the T. Denny Sanford School of 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, and stratification. My work offers critical insight into how the historical legacy of colonization and present-day 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.
