My research falls into several broad categories, including transnational migration, education and democracy, critical race theory, urban political geography, and refugee and asylum policy. I am interested in the philosophies and practices related to immigrant integration and questions of citizenship. I am also interested in social and racial conflicts in the context of immigration, gentrification and rapid urban change. Upcoming fieldwork on faith-based movements and the provision of sanctuary in Europe has been funded by a Guggenheim Fellowship. Scroll down for more!
