About me

I am an assistant professor of Spanish and Hispanic studies with a specialization on Latin American literature and Latinx studies. My research focus is on contemporary Afro-Caribbean literature and Decolonial Feminism.

I teach at Earlham because of College’s commitment to educating critical thinkers and to encourage political action as an essential component of pedagogy.
