I am a cultural studies scholar working in the areas of Afro-Latin American and Indigenous studies, political philosophy and the environmental humanities. My dissertation, Life Politics: Race, Ecology and Dissident Aesthetics in Colombia, offers a critical reinterpretation of biopolitical theory and human rights through a study of Afro-Colombian and Indigenous cultural production since the 1960s. I have published articles in the Journal of Latin American Cultural StudiesRevista de Estudios Colombianos and Journal of Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture (forthcoming). My critical essays and book reviews have appeared in Global South Studies and Afro-Hispanic Review. I am also editor of  the Cultural Production section of Colombia Syllabus / Primera Línea Académica.    

Currently a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellow at the University of Virginia, in August 2022 I will be joining the faculty of Texas Tech University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures .
