Research

  I am currently working on two projects. 

The first is a book, jointly with Prof. Laird Bergad of CUNY, entitled, “Colonialism, Free Trade, and Agrarian Social Structure in Puerto Rico: 1898-1940.”

The working title of the second project is: "The Bordering of America: Mexicans, Filipinos, and Puerto Ricans in the U.S. Political Economy after the Wars of 1848 and 1898.”
