Summary Academic Interest: 

I am interested in social movements and social change processes affecting the life conditions of marginalized and socio-economically disadvantaged populations. My research emphasizes the role of human mobility and the geographic application of social theory in understanding and addressing the problem of increasing global inequality. I am also interested in human geographic applications of GIS

My research work at Davis is complemented by strong enthusiasm for providing high quality instruction and additional interests in immigrant justice, community development, epistemology, and the social norms of economics and social welfare
