Thank you for visiting. I am Josefina, a current doctoral student in the department of sociology at UCLA. My research is about the life course transitions of immigrants in the United States. The first line of my work explores the experiences of immigrant youth in high school and college. A second line of work explores older age economic outcomes by immigration status. I am curious about demography and population change especially as it relates to migration. I became interested in these topics because of the increasing importance of older age composition in high income countries combined with high levels of labor induced migration. My work is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. For fun, I enjoy dancing salsa and playing soccer with my nine year old brother.
