 Research and teaching center on 20th and 21st century Latin American literature and cinema.

The intersections of gender, politics, and culture in contemporary Latin America, with a particular emphasis on 21st century Argentine literature and film, rest at the heart of my teaching and research.

Apart from my academic pursuits, I have conducted and published on several human rights-related projects at home and abroad. I have also been seconded to work at The United Nations Security Council, The International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, and The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. I find participating in the Albright Institute to be rewarding. These undertakings have remained an inspirational force for meaningful interdisciplinary research and teaching projects.

I believe in pedagogical dynamism that encourages critical thinking, academic rigor, and creativity among my students. Much of my teaching focuses on Spanish language courses, Latin American literature, cultures, poetry, human rights, and cinema.
