I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at Duke University, where my concentrations are race stratification and organizational sociology. Broadly, my research deals with race and diversity issues on college campuses; race and migration in and from Latin America; and issues of race, identity, and belonging. My current projects deal with the experiences of Latinx students at institutions of higher education; on racial identity discourses in the Dominican diaspora; and on the intersections of religion, migration, and politics via the New Sanctuary Movement.
An MMUF and IRT Fellow, I received a BA in Sociology and Africana Studies from Bowdoin College (Class of 2017), where my research centered around incidents of racial bias and the experiences of students of color on predominantly white college campuses. I am also enrolled in the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Certificate Program at Duke.
