Professor Brad Jones
The LPRG@UC Davis is run by Professor Brad Jones. Professor Jones' research focuses on discrimination, stereotyping and Latina/o politics. In particular, he is interested in questions about how Latina/os see, perceive, and experience discrimination. Additionally, Professor Jones is interested in how immigrants are portrayed, viewed, and treated by nonimmigrant populations. His research on these topics has been published widely, including in top journals like the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, Political Behavior, and Legislative Studies Quarterly. Several Ph.D. students as well as UCD undergraduates work with and assist Professor Jones in LPRG's research. In addition to research, he regularly volunteers to assist Latina/o migrants on the U.S. / Mexico Border.
