About the Researcher

Grace Sumabat Estrada is a doctoral candidate at the University of California at Santa Cruz. In 2012, she was awarded the Graduate Research Fellowship by the National Science Foundation.  She was inspired to study the experiences of mixed heritage individuals by her own mixed heritage daughter, to whom she affectionately refers to as a “filatina.”
