Dr. Chávez has conducted field research in Tijuana and Guanajuato, Mexico and North Carolina on internal and international migration, labor markets, social networks, and the border. His other research investigates the meaning that unauthorized migrants who work in the roofing industry give to their jobs. This project investigates how masculinity shapes the way men perform their jobs, how they deal with injuries and sickness, and how they draw on social support from family and friends to overcome isolation and dangerous working conditions.
