About Me

I am currently a Dissertation Fellow and Visiting Lecturer at Mount Holyoke College’s Department of History. I am finishing my last year at Indiana University-Bloomington and defend on April 2019. My dissertation focuses on survival and resistance tactics of community-based organizations in both El Salvador and the U.S.

I also have museum experience, working as a fellow and contractor at the Smithsonian Latino Center.
