AAST/SOC 407 – Comparative Racial Formation
I’m currently working on
A community engaged research project on policing in Chicago. We want to understand the impact of advanced data analysis and coordination between local, state, and federal policing agencies on policing in Chicago.
I’m also organizing a symposium on Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria that will take place at UIC on April 20. We are excited to announce that Carmen Yulin Cruz, the Mayor of San Juan, will provide the keynote address.
I recently published
