Christina is a Ph.D. student in Sociology and African American Studies and a Graduate Fellow at the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration. Their past mixed methods research on race and space, municipal redistricting, and urban policing with the UChicago Justice Project resulted in co-authored publications in Social Problems and the University of Chicago Law Review. Christina’s current research examines how the state and private institutions coordinate to produce carceral infrastructures and geographies, and how urban and incarcerated communities resist transnational forces of oppression through the local.
