While I have wide ranging interests in development and critical human geography, I currently focus on youth migration in Latin America and the U.S./Mexico border region. In recent years, I have worked extensively with migrants in Mexican and American immigration detention centres. My research explores issues surrounding youth, rights, inequality, borders, and violence.
