Migration Health Research Area/Expertise
I have conducted research on migration and health since 2004. In the past 10 years, as a professor-researcher in El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, I have lead projects on migrant mental health, public policies of migration and health, migrants' access to healthcare, and interventions to address mental health issues among migrants. My research has mainly focused on Mexican migrants deported from the United States, mixed migrant flows in transit through Mexico, and Venezuelans in Colombia, always trying to apply a global perspective to highlight what these cases can tell us about the socially determined aspects of migration and health in general. I have employed quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods, as well as comparative policy analysis. My research perspective stems from social medicine, social epidemiology, and the social determinants of health.
