Welcome!

I am a Professor in the Political Science Department at Mount San Antonio College. I earned a Ph.D. from Claremont
Graduate University in 2018, where I completed my
dissertation, entitled, The Media and Immigration: Evaluating the Role of the Media in Policy Preference Formation and
Legislative Outcomes
.

My research interests focus on state and local politics, race and ethnicity, the mass media, political communication, and political behavior.

I have taught courses on Immigration, Latino Politics, Public Policy, and Law and Society. I have also taught several introductory courses in American Politics.

I am currently researching how media coverage affects attitudes toward immigration within the states. I am also researching how public opinion toward Latinos is formed given their emergence into non-traditional U.S. states.

My work has appeared in Sociology Compass, the American Communication Journal, Ethics and
Experiments: Problems and Solutions for Social Scientists and Policy Professionals
,
andĀ Unconventional, Partisan, and Polarizing Rhetoric: How the 2016 Election Shaped the Way
Candidates Strategize, Engage, and Communicate
. I also recently served as an editorial assistant for theĀ Journal of Politics.
