Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the School of Politics and Global Studies and the Center for Latina/os and American Politics Research at Arizona State University. I will begin an Assistant Professor position in the School of Politics and Global Studies in the 2021-2022 academic year. 

My research focuses on contemporary U.S. immigration policy and politics, especially the internationalization of U.S. migration control. I apply approaches and methods from the fields of bureaucratic and administrative politics, organizational behavior, and international cooperation to the study of U.S. migration control.

I earned my PhD in the Department of Government at Harvard University. As a first-generation college student, I attended Rice University, from where I earned a B.A. in Political Science and Policy Studies.
