Biography and Research Interests
My research focuses on anti-capitalist resistance movements in Latin@/Latin America. I am interested in the ways in which ideas about economy and community are lived in daily experience, focusing on the spaces and discourses that work to create alternatives to capitalism. I seek to decolonize my intellectual questions and products by pursuing collaborative and participatory research that aims to use research for social justice and community expression through organizing, filmmaking, and creative writing.
