Research and Project Interests:My current research hinges on an in-depth investigation of women in the environment through the lens of ecofeminist discourse. Specifically, I have researched and written on Black women and the environment in the African Diaspora of the Spanish-speaking world. My research studies works by writers like the Afro-Colombian Manuel Zapata Olivella who have written much about the marginalized segments of the collective Latin American society amid environmental degradation.
