Green Hall 434D
Assistant Professor of Spanish
My research and teaching interests focus on the 20th and 21st century Latin American literature and film.
Much of my current research deals with Latin American women’s literary production in general and Argentine filmmaking in particular.
In addition to these academic pursuits, I have conducted and published on several human rights-related projects at home and abroad. Interspersed with my academic career, I have 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 also enjoy participating in the Albright Institute. These undertakings have remained an inspirational force for meaningful interdisciplinary research and teaching projects.
Apart from language courses, my teaching experiences include courses on Latin American literature, cultures, poetry, human rights, and film.
