I am a tenure-track professor in the Department of Political and Social Sciences at Pompeu Fabra University. I work on questions arising in demography, law, and public policy related to human mobility and migration, social segregation, and disease ecology in the Sociodemography Research Group (DemoSoc) and the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Immigration (GRITIM). I teach "Theories of International Migration and the Incorporation of Immigrants," "Research Methods Applied to Global Studies," and "Advanced Criminological Research Methods." I am also a founding member of Mosquito Alert and the Global Mosquito Alert initiative.

My training is in a combination of ecology (B.S., Cornell University, 1997), law (J.D., Cornell University, 2003), and demography (Ph.D., Princeton University, 2013). In addition to my research, I have managed refugee relief projects in Bosnia, Albania, and Kosovo, and I have worked as a protection officer for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in Kosovo and Montenegro. I have also served as a law clerk to Judge Richard J. Cardamone, and as a mediator and a staff attorney supervisor for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
