Want to learn more about immigration, the Latino middle class in Orange County and entrepreneurs in Southern California? Ask Jody Agius Vallejo, who specializes in immigration, immigrant integration, race/ethnicity and Latinos. In August, Stanford University Press will release her book, “Barrios to Burbs: The Making of the Mexican-American Middle Class.” It examines patterns of mobility and socioeconomic incorporation among the Mexican-origin middle class in Southern California. Her research was featured in a cover story by Investment Advisor Magazine.

What I like best about what I do: Conducting research about social issues, such as the ways in which immigrants and their descendants are assimilating into American society.
