About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the University of California, San Diego. My research interests include race and ethnicity, representation, and immigration in the comparative and American contexts. If you have questions about my research, please contact me via email: lspangle[at]ucsd[dot]edu.

Before academia, I taught World History and American History for five years at a public high school in Pennsylvania. My love of teaching and research has driven me to pursue a PhD in order to teach in higher ed.
