Primary Field: 19th & 20th Century Mexico (Advised by Alida Metcalf)
Secondary Field: Latin America (Advised by Moramay Lopez-Alonso)
Additional Field: 19th Century United States Southwest Borderlands (Advised by Caleb McDaniel)
My research interests include 19th and 20th century Mexico and its relation to the U.S. Southwest borderlands. I am currently exploring how border cities established celebrations in order to attract attention from the national government in an era when the border was declining in significance.
