A sociologist by training, I got my PhD in Sociology at Brandeis University in 1999.  At UHM, I have enjoyed bringing an interdisciplinary approach to my research and teaching.  In 2013, I received the UHM Chancellor's award for teaching.  My research, writing and teaching are further enriched by my day-to-day involvement in the immigrant rights movement and the labor movement.
