Dr. Blanco’s research agenda seeks to understand the roles and implications of race and ethnicity in the public administrative apparatus of the U.S. and Mexico, where he was born and raised. He is particularly interested in how ethnoracial inequalities may be produced, reinforced, and addressed within and through public organizations and public policies.
Prior to obtaining his PhD, Professor Blanco worked extensively in academia and the public sector. He has experience as a community organizer, and also as a consultant, researcher and instructor in public administration and public policy in both the U.S. and Mexico.
Dr. Blanco has been recognized with several prestigious awards, including the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration Staats Emerging Scholar Award, and the American Society for Public Administration Founders’ Fellowship.
