Roberto F. Carlos
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin.
Before my appointment at Texas, I was an Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department at the University of Georgia and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, and Immigration at the University of Pennsylvania.
I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago.
I am a scholar of race, ethnicity, and politics, and I am particularly interested in Latinx politics, immigration, political behavior, and socialization.
My research agenda focuses on the Latinx immigrant experience broadly. I am currently focusing on how Latinx immigrants and their children incorporate politically and how political institutions and the American public react to their attempts to create a place for themselves in the United States.
My work has appeared in the American Political Science Review; Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics; Justice System Journal; Political Research Quarterly; PS: Politics & Science; and The Journal of Legislative Studies.
