My research interests are centered on how Latino and African American juveniles, from underprivileged neighborhoods, are criminalized by both nurturing (e.g., schools) and non-nurturing (e.g., police) institutions.
My research interests also involve channeling at-risk Latino and African American youth, some who have been previously gang affiliated, to a path of success (e.g., college).
