Research Interests:
My work is focused on women in transition, and how women’s movement across borders affects their health. In particular, I am interested in migrant/immigrant women’s experiences of sexual violence. My dissertation, titled Somos Hermanas del Mismo Dolor (We Are Sisters of the Same Pain): Intimate Partner Sexual Violence Narratives Among Mexican Immigrant Women Living in Philadelphia, was the first study to specifically examine intimate partner sexual violence among immigrant Latinas in the US. I have also worked on a community based participatory research project in Oregon examining the problem of workplace sexual violence among Mexican indigenous farmworkers, and partnered with a farmworker organization in Southern NJ to conduct oral histories of farmworker women.
