Edward E. Hildebrand Research Fellowship

I am a PhD candidate in political science at the University of California. My research focuses on how ethnoracial minorities have used community organizing as a means to gain equal access to resources, employing a combination of qualitative, quantitative, and computational methods. My dissertation examines how the expansion of the welfare state fostered the emergence of panethnic community organizing within Asian American and Latino communities. I leverage the Canadian case in my dissertation to understand minority coalition formation in the United States in historical comparative perspectives.
