Good news! I am joining the Immigration Lab at American University as a Research Fellow
Although there are no changes to my role at TRAC, the Research Fellow position enables exciting new research possibilities for TRAC and the Immigration Lab at AU.
It’s official! I am excited to share that I was just appointed as a Research Fellow in the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies (CLALS) and the Immigration Lab at American University in Washington, D.C.
The Center for Latin American and Latino Studies (@AU_CLALS) is an outstanding research institute that embraces the kind of work that I am passionate about as a geographer, namely understanding the hemispheric drivers and consequences of human migration.
The Immigration Lab (@Immigration_Lab) is particularly exciting because of its emphasis on creative and cutting-edge research projects that are not limited by traditional disciplinary, methodological, or thematic boundaries. The Immigration Lab, for instance, recently shared the results of a study looking at migrants who were bussed from Texas and Arizona to DC in a report available on their website here.
The appointment will provide me—and TRAC—with the opportunity to work with graduate students, faculty, and other partners in Washington, D.C. on projects that bring together the best of both TRAC’s quantitative research with CLALS’s more diverse research focuses. I will also be joining an incredible cohort of fellows at CLALS and at the Immigration Hub.
This partnership is a real win-win!
I am grateful to Dr. Ernesto Castañeda (@DrErnestoCast), director of CLALS and founding director of the Immigration Hub, for making this possible. Dr. Castañeda’s work focuses on contentious politics, immigration, borders, Latin people, health disparities, and homelessness. I am excited to work more closely with him.
