Assistant Professor of Geography University of California, Los Angeles
I am a human geographer that specializes in social movements, spatial theory, race, and sexuality studies. Trained as an interdisciplinary scholar, I completed my PhD in Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley in 2013. I am currently working on a book manuscript entitled Care is Political: Social Movement Activism and the Production of Space which traces the historical transformation of grassroots 1960s organizing into institutionalized agencies. The book argues for an analysis of social movement geographies and their ongoing production. My work can be found in Du Bois Review, Social Justice, and Latino Studies.
