Adriana P. Ramirez


Adriana P. Ramirez is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at UC Berkeley. Her research interests lie at the intersection of migration, citizenship, Latin America, political sociology, race and ethnicity, and youth.  The influence of growing up as a migrant student between Mexico and the U.S. and being the daughter of farmworkers is seen in her work that explores transnational migration dynamics.  Her current work explores what happens when young migrants leave the U.S. to “return” to their sending communities, and the impact of migration on the “sending communities.”
