Rogelio Sáenz is a leader in research and training related to racial-ethnic stratification in the United States, particularly as it affects Latine communities. He has written extensively on Latine American issues, including race, inequality, immigration, COVID-19 disparities, aging, and social justice. Demography, race and ethnicity, and social inequality intersect at the heart of Sáenz’s research, which has strengthened understanding of the health and well-being of the United States’ Latine population. His work goes beyond core demographic outcomes to cover topics like immigrant integration, intermarriage, psychological well-being, and public health. Sáenz’s many contributions include several books and over a hundred articles and book chapters, and he regularly writes opinion essays and research briefs for media and academic outlets across the U.S. Sáenz earned his PhD in sociology from Iowa State University and is currently a professor of demography at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
