Curriculum Vitae

Educational Background

  • Ph.D. in Romance Languages with a concentration in Portuguese from the University of North Carolina at Chapel-Hill
  • M.A. in Romance Languages from the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio
  • B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from Schiller International University in Madrid, Spain

  • 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.
