 Brief description of your activity focus
Research on cultural and immigration studies, namely Mexican communities in the United States.

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I´ve carried out several research projects on Mexican immigrant associations (usually known as hometown associations, or HTAs) in the United States, dealing with three main topics. The first refers to their role regarding the relationship between regional development and collective remittances sent to Mexico by these groups. The second refers to the political participation these associations have promoted within their memberships, both in Mexico and the United States. And the third topic refers to cultural issues, like the promotion of a collective identity by these associations.

 International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
I´m currently doing my sabbatical in Spain, my main goal is to carry out a comparative project on immigrant associations in main destination regions. For that matter, I will be comparing the role of Mexican immigrant hometown associations in the Los Angeles region with Ecuadorian immigrant groups in the City of Valencia, Spain, namely in terms of the extent of these groups in terms of promoting integration in their respective destination societies.
