My primary research interests are in labor economics, particularly in the areas of Hispanic labor-market outcomes (including self-employment issues) as well as the economics of the U.S.-Mexico border. A lot of my research utilizes public-use microdata from the decennial census and the American Community Survey. My studies also involve policy prescriptions.
