I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of New Mexico. My research, which has won awards from the ASA, SSSP, and Rice University, focuses on the dynamics of housing and rental markets, the built environment, race/ethnicity, and immigration.
Currently, I am working on several solo and collaborative projects that address these questions. These projects include an examination of housing market professionals and housing inequality; a mixed-methods study looking at the extent to which physical barriers shape segregation patterns and how these patterns are experienced on the ground; a study of rental property management practices and experiences; a mixed-methods examination of the appraisal industry; and a study of immigrant housing integration in Europe, among others.
