Media Inquiries


My ability to respond to media requests is limited given my research and teaching schedule. I am more likely to be of service with some lead time (preferably days, rather than hours). I am fully bilingual and I am especially inclined to do television, radio, and/or panel discussions in either English or Spanish. Please direct any press inquiries to me at If I am unable to respond to your message within 1 hour, it means I’m unavailable to help. Please see below for some of my recent conversations with news reporters.
