Research

My research advances our understanding of bureaucrats as not only policy implementors but also as policy makers, immigration policy as both domestic and foreign policy, and migration control as a site of both interstate conflict and cooperation. More broadly, my research advances the study of the American bureaucracy and bureaucratic harms, inequality and public policy, the intersection of Latinx politics and U.S. political institutions, and the strategic behavior of political organizations.
