- About Me
4th year PhD candidate at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. My MA is in History & Digital Media from CSU San Marcos, and my BA is in Criminology, Law & Society from UC Irvine. My dissertation research focuses on the development of juvenile justice systems in the American southwest and the intersection of race, criminality, and the border in the policing and surveillance of youth. Additionally, I am interested in digital and public history as both a method of analysis but also as a way to better inform public policy and the criminal justice reform. Furthermore, I am a multimedia artist who works withing acrylic painting, digital collage, and photography mediums.
