As a Hispanist with a grounding in French Studies and a secondary specialization in African Studies, my academic work focuses on comparative approaches to immigration, transnational identities, (post)coloniality, and Islam in the West through a cultural and historical lens. 

A Puerto Rican initially trained as a scholar of Latin America and the Caribbean, I also engage with cultural discourses on Latino identity, the politics of language, and the intersections of gender, race, and class in the public sphere, particularly with regards to education and parenting. 

I work in English, think in Spanish, and occasionally dream in French.
