B.A. Comparative Literature, Brown University (2017)


My academic interests primarily concern how Latin American women queer or otherwise problematize motherhood. I am especially interested in examining motherhood through the lens of immigration narratives. The “occupation” of a body and the porosity of bodily borders during pregnancy closely mirrors the colonial violence and uncertainty of migration.

Personal Interests

In addition to my academic interests, I also enjoy creative writing, translating, baking, and hiking.
