I am a historian of science and medicine in Latin America. 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 about some of my dissertation research on the history of vaccines here.
I am passionate about teaching and mentorship and teach courses on race and science, gender and health, medicine and empire, Afro-Latin America, and colonial and modern Latin America and the Caribbean.
I am also a digital humanities scholar, a member of the Duke Digital History Working Group, and a co-founder of Duke HAW!, a group committed to thinking deeply about creative writing in the world of academia and beyond.
