He has also published on the history of Latin American immigration to the U.S., drawing on his work with Latin American immigrants and his interest in inter-American relations.

His teaching interests range widely. He has taught surveys and upper-division courses on Mexico, Latin America, and inter-American relations. He looks forward to teaching existing courses and developing new ones at JSU.
