Bio

I study transnational migration to Mexico and Mexican migration to the United States. My current project, "The Other California," examines family labor, and Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, American, and European migration to Baja California (1850-1952). I am particularly interested in analyzing the intersections of race, gender, regional, and transnational migration in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands. I am also beginning a second project that examines the historical roots of rural Mexican migration to border communities in Mexico and the United States.
