Doctoral Candidate and Graduate Student Instructor
Comparative Romance studies; urban studies; carceral studies; anti-colonial praxis; theater and performance studies; GIS
I am currently in my fifth year of the Romance Languages and Literatures Ph.D. (concentrations in French, Spanish, and Portuguese). My primary research interests are in carceral studies — specifically multilingualism in prison and prison writing and performance as abolitionist practices. I’m also interested in imaginations of urban space across the Romance-speaking world.
I received a BA in Romance Languages and Literatures from the University of Michigan in 2018, having studied as well at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
It is my hope to create an inclusive classroom environment where students from all backgrounds feel welcomed!
