I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Urban Studies and Planning at the University of California, San Diego. I study politics and power dynamics in the areas of migration, gender and globalization. In particular, I focus on Latin America and the relationships between Mexico and the United States. I also do research and social justice work with the immigrant community in Southern California. I completed my PhD at Berkeley in 2014.
