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

My current book project explores the history of deportation over the last century. 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.
