I am a PhD Candidate of Geography at the University of Washington in Seattle. I graduated with a BA in Geography from Dartmouth College. I research questions of transnational migrations, place-making, and racial capitalism. I am also interested in representations of embodiment through various media sources, especially in relation to masculinity. My current project examines how scholars can better understand mobility through the experiences of migrant communities navigating the material, social, and political configurations of post-industrial suburbs. Because of my background in community organizing, I am drawn to representing these findings beyond academic spaces as well. If you are interested in calling me in to speak about race, anti-Blackness, and Latinidad, please feel free to drop a line.
I served as a teaching assistant to Explanation and Understanding in Geography and taught Environmental Justice. I am a fellow with the National Science
Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program and the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship. I will serve as a Gaius Charles Bolin Fellow with the Latina/o/x Studies program at Williams College beginning fall 2020.
