I am a scholar of migration interested in the interconnected histories of people throughout the Americas. In 2015-16, I will be a Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholar in the Humanities at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Beginning fall 2016, I will be an Assistant Professor of History and Latin American and Latino Studies at the University of Illinois, Chicago. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.

My current book project explores the rise of the deportation regime and the expulsion of Mexicans from the United States since the 1940s. I have published articles, essays, and reviews in academic venues like the Journal of American Ethnic History, and popular outlets such as The Nation and The Washington Post.

For the last three years I have lived in Mexico City, and I will continue to spend part of each year there in the future.
