Adriano Udani (firstname.lastname@example.org) is an Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the Public Policy Administration Program at the University of Missouri, St. Louis. Adriano also serves as the Research Advisor for the Community Innovation and Action Center (CIAC). He specializes in the study of political attitudes toward immigrant groups and policy decisions that affect immigrant treatment in the United States. He also studies public misperceptions of immigration enforcement and its impact on immigrant communities. His research is published in American Review of Public Administration; Administrative Praxis & Theory; American Politics Research; Social Sciences Quarterly; Politics, Groups, & Identities; Policy Studies Journal; State Politics & Policy Quarterly; and Public Integrity.

His current project involves partnering with immigrant service providers, attorneys, and asylum seekers to abolish detention of all forms.
