I am a historian of science and medicine in Latin America and the Caribbean. Currently, I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies at Duke University and program coordinator for the Humanities Unbounded Lab, Revaluing Care in the Global Economy.
My broader research interests include the global history of medicine and science; race and indigeneity; slavery and emancipation; and feminist and postcolonial studies. You can read more about my dissertation research on the history of slavery and vaccination here and here.
I am passionate about teaching and mentorship and teach history and interdisciplinary courses on gender studies; science, medicine, and technology; race, slavery, and emancipation; and colonial and modern Latin America and the Caribbean.
I am also a digital humanities scholar and a co-founder of Duke HAW!, a group committed to thinking deeply about creative writing in the world of academia and beyond.
