About

My research examines 21st-century migration across the Americas.  Looking at contemporary narratives by migrants and others, I analyze the economy of movement anchored by the Mexico/US border. I focus on concepts such as habit, uncertainty, and rhythm to reveal the matrix of physical and legal infrastructure that ensures a regime of suspended mobility.
