I am an assistant professor of Latin American literature & cultural studies at Texas Tech University. My research broadly examines the intersections and tensions between sexual dissidence, ecological thinking and decoloniality in twentieth- and twenty-first century visual culture, film and performance. I am currently working on a book manuscript about the post-pornography movement in Colombia, Mexico and the Southern Cone, as well as a collaborative book project on life politics in Latin America. My other ongoing projects are informed by interests in Indigenous and Afro-descendant literature and performance art, queer cultural production and plantation afterlives across the Américas.
I received my PhD in 2022 from the University of Virginia, where my dissertation Life Politics: Race, Ecology and Dissident Aesthetics in Colombia was supported by a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship. My publications have appeared in the Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies, Journal of Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture, Revista de Estudios Colombianos, Global South Studies and Afro-Hispanic Review.
