I have been at the The Department of Mexican American Studies (MAS) since 2003. I teach the Mexican American Studies introduction and Latin@ Urbanization courses for undergraduates and graduate courses in cultural history. Born and raised in Tucson, my deep family roots on both sides of the Arizona-Sonora border inspired my interest in regional history. My newest research illustrates how postwar federal housing polices, along with urban planning and zoning directives, affected ethnic communites in Southern Arizona.
I am curretly the Director of Graduate Studies for our department.
