I study migration, demography, and the far-reaching consequences of U.S. immigration law. Specifically, I pay attention to the spatial variation of immigration law in new immigrant destinations. My dissertation uses mixed methods to study immigration courts in the Upper Midwest, paying attention to how courts manage and adjudicate their growing backlog of cases. A demographer by training, I also study internal migration patterns in the Midwest focusing on both metro and non-metro areas.
My work appears in Law & Social Inquiry, PLOS One, MPI's Migration Information Source, Border Criminologies, MinnPost, and the Companion to Urban and Regional Studies.
