  • B.A Latin American Studies, Minor in Spanish (Summa Cum Laude) – University of California, Los Angeles (2018).


My areas of interest are literature, culture, politics and human rights issues in Latin America, with a focus on the study of authoritarian regimes and the treatment of vulnerable populations during and after internal conflicts.  In particular, I am interested in the Peruvian cultural production (visual and print forms) that emerged from the Peruvian internal conflict that lasted from 1980-2000.

Recently, I have been enrolled in a program which focuses on Peruvian literature from colonial to contemporary times.
