About Me

My work is situated within the field of American politics with a concentration on minority and identity politics and state politics and a specialization in Latino politics. Broadly defined, I examine how minorities behave both within political institutions and in the mass public. My research can best be classified into two categories: 1) Latino Representation, Minority Representation, and Institutions and 2) Mass Political Behavior of Minorities and Millennials and attitudes about immigration.
