I am a cultural studies scholar with research interests in the politics and aesthetics of human rights, environmental justice and ethno-racial radicalisms in Latin America and the Caribbean. My dissertation, “Life Politics: Race, Ecology and Dissident Aesthetics in Colombia," critically reinterprets the cultural politics of human rights in the Americas through a study of Colombian artists and intellectuals working within Black, Indigenous and campesino movements since the 1970s. I have published peer-reviewed articles in the Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies (forthcoming) and Revista de Estudios Colombianos. My other writings, including critical essays and book reviews, have appeared in Global South Studies and Afro-Hispanic Review. I currently edit the Cultural Production section of Colombia Syllabus / Primera Línea Académica.
