I try to write on a wide range of subjects mostly dealing with Mexico, migration, and non-human animals. I have published in academic journals such as American Anthropologist, the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, and the Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology. I have also published in other, more public, venues such as my 2019 piece on psychedelic mushrooms for Public Books, and my co-authored piece “Who doesn’t love a taco? “Taste the Nation” & the problem with neoliberal immigrant rights activism that appeared in Salon.

My 2017 article in American Anthropologist, “Uncertain futures: The Unfinished Houses of Undocumented Migrants in Oaxaca, Mexico” received the 2020 Prize for Exemplary Cross-Field Scholarship from the General Anthropology Division.
