Research Interest: 
Evolution of Mexican-American International Relations During the Tenure of the Partido Revolutionario Institutional (Pri)

Ms. Thomas will examine the evolution of Mexican-American relations from the beginning of the Cold War to the Post Cold War era and the creation of NAFTA. She will research the reasons behind the changes in Mexican- American relations during this time by focusing on different presidents and their administrations, domestic political and economic factors, and the ways in which international dynamics affected foreign policies of the two countries. By studying the evolution of Mexican-American relations, Ms. Thomas hopes to achieve a greater understanding of the future of Mexican American relations especially as it relates to the current economic integration created by NAFTA and whether it will ever extend to political integration of the two countries.
