For more than five years, I have been studying commercial relations between Mexico and the United States focusing on the livestock exchanges, from the late nineteenth century to the 1950s. My article "Revolution and Livestock Economy in Northern Mexico" (Revolución y ganadería en el norte de México) published in 2008 by Historia Mexicana, won Honorable Mention for the category Twentieth Century Mexican History awarded by Mexican Committee of Historical Sciences (Comité Mexicano de Ciencias Históricas), Mexico, July 7, 2010. Currently, I am researching meat consumption patterns in Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City from the late nineteenth century to the early twentieth, with a focus on the impact of meatpacking companies in both capital cities.
