View Curriculum Vitae
I am anthropologist whose research interests include theories of violence, materiality, death and mourning, Latin American migration, crime and forensic analyses, and archaeology of the contemporary.
I direct the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP), a long-term study of clandestine border crossing that uses a combination of ethnographic, archaeological, and forensic approaches to understand this phenomenon in a variety of geographic contexts including the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona, Northern Mexican border towns, and the southern Mexico/Guatemala border.
I am also developing a large-scale project on urban violence, Latinos, and crime scene analysis.
Note: Graduate students interested in working directly with Dr. De León should apply to the sociocultural program in anthropology.
