Research Interests: 
My primary research analyzes anti-colonial thought in the Chicano Movement in Michigan during the 1960s and 1970s.  I am especially interested in how political thought, Chicano identity, class, region and gender intersect.  In addition I am currently examining the impact of scientific research, mechanization, and free trade on ethnic Mexican migrant labor in Oceana County between 1980 and the present.
