I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. My research explores international migration, geopolitics, and migrants' experiences in North and Central America. My dissertation is a multi-sited ethnography of migrants' unauthorized journeys from Central America across Mexico to the U.S. Focusing on the spaces of transit between places of origin and destination, I examine the geopolitics of migrants' journeys as well as new forms of identity and belonging forged through transit.
