About Me:

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, with a focus on comparative politics. I am affiliated with the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Institute for Latino Studies, and the Juan March Institute at University Carlos III of Madrid (IC3JM). My research interests include transnational migration from Sub-Saharan Africa to Western Europe and the intersections between immigration status, race/ethnicity, and gender. In my dissertation research, she studies how gendered patterns of interaction with the bureaucratic state affect the civic and political integration of Malian and Equatorial Guinean immigrants in Spain. I will be spending the duration of 2018-2019 conducting fieldwork in Madrid and Barcelona whilst on a Fulbright grant.
