Bio

My research has focused primarily on immigration and related issues. However, I have also published on other topics such as U.S. media exports, agricultural investment in Mexico, the U.S. Medicaid program, and educational backgrounds of corporate CEOs. Some of my current work include coyote smugglers and Mexican immigrants, oil and corruption in developing countries, and Chinese trade in advance technology products. I have had papers published in many academic journals including Contemporary Economic Policy, Demography, Economics of Education Review, International Trade Journal, Journal of Developing Areas and the Review of Development Economics. I have presented papers at many domestic and international conferences including those of the American Economic Association, Southern Economic Association, Western Economic Association, Eastern Economic Association, European Society of Population Economics and the International Atlantic Economic Society.
