    I work at the intersection of economic, political, and cultural geography to study the impacts of globalization on local communities in Latin America.  My current research is focused on the economic, social, and cultural changes in a village in Jalisco, Mexico, and how those changes are affecting migration trends between Milwaukee, WI and that village.  This research also seeks to elucidate structural changes in Milwaukee's labor market in order to inform discussions on the relationship between skills and employment under conditions of neoliberal economic restructuring.
