My research focuses on the history of transatlantic migrations (in particular, from southern Europe to Latin America), migrant correspondence, and the history of emotions as a lens to understand the experience of migration. For more information, see Publications.

My scholarship also includes editorial work. I am the co-editor (together with Madeline Hsu, University of Maryland-College Park) of the Book Series “Studies of World Migrations,” published by the University of Illinois Press.
