Margot Moinester

Assistant Professor of Sociology

Margot Moinester’s research focuses on immigration, inequality, and health. She is currently engaged in two lines of inquiry. The first investigates how and why rates of immigration enforcement vary over time, between demographic groups, and across the elaborate jurisdictional landscape of the United States. The second examines specific health consequences of U.S. immigration enforcement practices and policies for Latina immigrants and their children. Professor Moinester employs a mixed-methods approach in her research, combining quantitative analysis of administrative, archival, and census data with qualitative fieldwork in several U.S. states.
