My research centers primarily on the intersection of gender and immigration in the US context, with a particular focus on gendered violence. More broadly, my interest in immigration has motivated my work on language politics, refugee and asylum policy, detention and deportation, and borders. Beyond this, I do work in feminist cultural studies, including an article (currently under review) about the corporate articulation of feminism in the CBS television show "Supergirl."
