Research Interests

I study labor, business, and Latinx history in the twentieth century United States, particularly in California during the New Deal era. My master’s thesis aims to chronicle the Ventura County Citrus Strike of 1941 and use the event as a case study to weave together varies historiographical threads in legal, labor, business, and Latinx history. I plan to continue researching the county for my dissertation.
