I am a Ph.D. student in Cultural Anthropology, focused on investigating the intersections of colonization, race, multi-species ontologies, art, and design. I seek to make arts-based, sensory ethnographic work that explores the nature of anti-racist, decolonial activism among human and non-human communities in the climate change era. I have training in software development, new media arts practice, design research, and creative writing. My dissertation is a multimodal project that seeks to explore multi-species relations and designs for alternatives to capitalism in Latinx communities in South-Central Texas.
