Current research

I am interested in understanding how the structures of difference operate as well as the processes of legitimization replicate in contemporary societies. My goal is to contribute to our understanding of how cultural forms are mediated by racial signifying practices thus forming individual and collective identities. I have developed a research agenda that engages in interdisciplinary approaches and employs a transnational framework to study topics of race/ethnicity, immigration, border, under the lens of whiteness in coalescence with several critical theories.
