I am a social scientist concerned with the institutional, social, and policy mechanisms that shape the experiences of underrepresented communities. After successfully defending my dissertation in May of 2015, I graduated with a Ph.D. in Political Science from Texas A&M University the following August. I am affiliated with The Project for Equity, Representation, and Governance, a research collective housed within the Department of Political Science at Texas A&M University. I also hold a BBA in Finance and an MS in Economics, both from the University of Texas at El Paso. During the course of my doctoral studies my major fields were public administration and public policy, with race & ethnic politics serving as my secondary field. I joined the Center for Organization Research and Design at Arizona State University (ASU) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in January of 2016. In the fall of 2017 I joined the School of Public Affairs at ASU as an Assistant Professor.
Within the context of local governance, my broad research interests encompass the fields of political science, public administration, and public policy. My research examines the organizational and political determinants of various outcomes within racial and ethnic minority communities. Much of my work can be characterized as an effort to understand the sources and practical implications of minority representation within service-providing institutions, and the mechanisms that alleviate disparities in policy settings that are essential to the broader incorporation of underrepresented groups. To date, my research has been particularly concerned with such mechanisms in the context of Latino communities and their youth.
