About Me

I am a historian of visual and material culture. I hold a PhD in History of Art and MA in Metropolitan History. My research interests include art and visual culture in Spain and Latin America, transatlantic material cultures, and urban and women’s studies.  My book, Madrid on the move: Feeling modern and visually aware in the nineteenth century (Manchester University Press, Feb 2021) examines illustrated print media and urban identities in the nineteenth-century. I live in Miami and currently teach at Florida International University.
