Assistant Professor, Political Science, Rutgers University – Newark

My research program and teaching portfolio focus on racial and ethnic politics, urban politics, education politics and public policy. Specifically, my research explores the ways state policies help expand or diminish political inequality among historically marginalized populations.

My current research examines how the increasing presence of state governments in urban affairs after the 1960s has affected Black and Latino political empowerment in U.S. cities. I am currently working on several journal articles and a book manuscript that examine the effects of state centralization on Black and Latino political empowerment, specifically looking at the politics of state takeovers of local school districts.

In addition to my scholarship, I have years of applied experience in political affairs and public policy. I am co-founder and co-chair of the Latino Policy Institute at Roger Williams University and past president of the Rhode Island Latino Political Action Committee.

I received my Ph.D. in political science from Brown University in 2014.
