Department Demography;


My research focuses on three primary fields: migration and immigration, family demography, and the transition to adulthood in the United States and Latin America. In my current and past research I have studied the impact of migration on the socioeconomic status of families with migrants, the role of international migration on the education of youth, and the effects of migration on union formation and union stability. Overall, I am interested in exploring the impact of migration on the families of migrants, as well as the demographic impact of migration in both sending and receiving societies.
