I’m a social scientist specializing in Latin American politics and immigration. I hold a Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin. At UT-Austin I was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow (2005-2008) and recipient of the Michael H. Granof Outstanding Graduate Student Award (2010). My research on Mexican politics, Latino immigration, and social science methodology has appeared in Perspectives on Politics, Latino Studies, and Electoral Studies. I have served as a visiting assistant professor at Sarah Lawrence College and The New School. While doing fieldwork in the Mexican countryside, I made a documentary called The Other Side of Immigration, which won the American Library Association Notable Video Award and has screened at dozens of institutions, including Princeton, Harvard, MIT, and the American Museum of Natural History. I have also produced a series of short documentaries about Latino immigration for Vice News. Media appearances include MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, The Fox News Channel, WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer ShowUnivision’s Al Punto Con Jorge RamosNPR’s Weekend Edition, Telemundo, and The Economist.
