I am an Assistant Professor of History and Urban Studies at New York University. My research and teaching interests include modern U.S. history and Latinx studies, along with urban, cultural, and political history. My work explores race and immigration in the study of metropolitan landscapes, segregation, gentrification, and spatial contestation. My most recent article was published in the Journal of American History entitled, “Beautiful Urbanism: Gender, Landscape, and Contestation in Latino Chicago‚Äôs Age of Urban Renewal.” I have been the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards including a University of California Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at UC San Diego in 2013-2014.
