I am a historical and cultural anthropologist specializing in Latin America. 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 postdoctoral research fellow at the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard (2015-2016). I specialize in 20th- and 21st-century Mexico with a focus on state formation, nation building, social memory, indigeneity, and agrarian and environmental studies.
