About Me

In August 2020, I began my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in the Department of Government. My primary field of study is Public Law, and my secondary is Comparative Politics. My academic and personal interests include immigration politics, Latin American politics, and judicial politics.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked for several years as a legal assistant in three different immigration law offices. Through this professional experience, I have cultivated a profound passion for issues such as immigration policy, immigration politics, and the growing academic field of “crimmigration,” the intersection of criminal law and immigration law.
