  • Curriculum Vitae


I am a Ph.D student in the Sociology Department at the University of Oregon. In 2014 I received a BA in Sociology from California State University Long Beach, and in 2017 I received an MS in sociology from the University of Oregon.  I'm interested in mechanisms by which racial inequality are reproduced and maintained in the so called "post-racial" era.
For my Master's paper, titled: “They Want the Spanish but They Don’t Want the Mexicans”: Whiteness and Consumptive Contact in an Oregon Spanish Immersion School", I explore the ways race, space, and power are negotiated and interpreted in an Oregon Spanish Immersion School, with a focus on the politics of diversity, colorblind racism, and white-Latinx relations.
