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 or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics, Justice System Journal, the Journal of Legislative Studies and PS: Politics & Science.
