My research focuses on immigrant adaptation and family survival strategies in receiving contexts, migration and family processes in sending contexts and the connections between them. I have worked on projects examining life course transitions of immigrant and native youth in the United States, economic distribution of wealth in immigrant and native households and the stability of extended family households over time and comparisons of migration and education in Mexico and the United States.
