I work at the intersection of economic, political, and cultural geography to study the impacts of globalization on local communities in Latin America. My 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 understand changes in Milwaukee's labor market in order to inform discussions on the relationship between skills and employment in today's economy. I'm also studying the opportunities and challengs that Latinos face on their paths to higher education.
