I am a researcher and teacher whose work is set at the intersection of social theory, political philosophy, literary and cultural studies, and urban studies. Before coming to Stanford to work on a Ph.D. in Modern Thought and Literature, I earned a BA in Government and International Politics and an MA in English with a concentration in literature from George Mason University. I also have six years of experience working in the private sector as a contract and financial analyst.

My dissertation is a history of cultural and urban politics in the city of Bogotá, Colombia from the end of the nineteenth century through the end of the twentieth century. 

I hope to direct my professional career to teaching, research, and writing related to cultural, political, urban, and territorial issues in Latin America and beyond.
