Research interests:

My research broadly encompasses areas of race/ethnicity, immigration, gender, and media. I am particularly interested in racialized citizenship, visa policy, and racialized liminality within immigration. My work includes analysis of race and gender in media, whiteness and diversity studies, and diversity in higher ed. I am pursuing a project on international students, race, and higher ed for my dissertation research.
