My research has been focused on Puerto Rican migration in New England, especially in the region of Western Massachusetts, and in the broader context of the process of expansion from traditional destination cities. In my dissertation, I look at such topics as community formation, the use of public space, and the labor market. I am also interested in pedagogy and high school teaching, which I hope to pursue as a career.
