Brief Bio

My research focuses on Hispanic migration to the South, and the social class distinctions and racialization processes that create divergent experiences in Southern spaces and places. My dissertation, "The Latinization of Orlando: Race, Class, and the Politics of Place," focused on language ideologies, racial formation, and the embodied social class identities that impacted Hispanic migration, settlement, and incorporation in Central Florida. I specialize in the anthropology of the contemporary United States with interests in Hispanic migration, critical race theory, language ideologies, social class inequalities, and suburbanization. My new ethnographic research examines Hispanic migration to Memphis, Tennessee and North Mississippi.
