Welcome to my site. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Georgetown University's Department of Government. I research diaspora politics, transnationalism, labor, and migration issues in the U.S. and Latin America. My fieldwork has been in Mexico, El Salvador, and the Dominican Republic. As a journalist, I write about labor, immigration, social science, and classical music. Please follow the links in the menu for more about my dissertation, academic and policy publications, journalism, and teaching experience. You can find my CV here.

Read more about my research in The Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog here.
