Bio

I am a historical and cultural anthropologist specializing in Latin America and Mexico in particular. I received my M.A. in Museum Studies from New York University in 2008 and my Ph.D. in Anthropology from Cornell University with a concentration in Latin American Studies in 2015. Prior to coming to Lafayette, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard (2015-2016). In my work, I examine the role that objects, media, and built landscapes play in the actualization, remembrance, and forgetting of state violence.
