I am a sociocultural anthropologist with a regional focus on the U.S. and southern Mexico. My research interests encompass the topics of international migration, farm labor, transborder community, ethnicity, race, culture, and indigenous peoples. From 2015 - 2016 I conducted ethnographic fieldwork in California, Florida, and Mexico to gather data for my dissertation project, a comparative study of the migration experiences of two indigenous migrant groups: The Mixtec of Oaxaca and the Highland Maya of Chiapas.
