Gálvez's research focuses on immigration, Mexico, public health and reproductive health. She is especially interested in the efforts of immigrants to achieve the rights of citizenship and belonging and the ways that U.S. institutions work to welcome or to discourage such efforts. Founder of the Mexican Studies Institute at the City University of New York—first on the East Coast— and founder of a faculty network to support undocumented students, Gálvez is an advocate for immigrant students and their families. As a public intellectual, she strives to bring people-centered, inquiry-based and inductive research methods to the public sphere.
