Abstract
I am a tenured teaching specialist with full professorial rank, a significant publication record, and active research and leadership agenda. As a historical and applied demographer, I teach in the undergraduate Urban Studies major, and in the graduate and professional programs in urban and regional planning, and in demographic and social analysis. In recent years my research has focused on the migratory exchange between China and California that was triggered by the 1849 Gold Rush.
