Biography

I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to NJ with my parents and two older sisters when I was an infant. Although I have no formal training I've always loved music, acting, and drawing. When I'm not studying I enjoy doing just about anything outdoors or experimenting with recipes in the kitchen. I've also been known to binge watch anime on occasion.

Research Interests

I am a PhD student at Arizona State University studying Communication from a critical cultural approach. My research interests include racial and ethnic identity performance, queer of color critique, and settler/post/decolonial theory, particularly as relates to Boricua/Puerto Rican studies. I am especially interested in indigenous epistemologies and am currently exploring the use of Arts-Based and methods as a way to decolonize research and voice knowledges that may not otherwise be articulated.
