I am an anti-racist, decolonial, feminist scholar, using climate change, food, and agricultural production, as a lens to explore human-environment interactions and geopolitical conditions. I currently conduct research and teach at the University of Delaware in the Department of Geography & Spatial Sciences (link). I hold a joint appointment with the Department of Women & Gender Studies and am affiliate faculty in Latin American & Iberian Studies. I also co-facilitate the Embodiment Lab. From 2021 – 2022 I was a fellow of the University of Delaware Anti-Racism Initiative. In 2023, I was named a fellow of the American Association of Geographers, a lifetime appointment and honor.
As a feminist political geographer, I am primarily interested in investigating the multi-sited ‘geo’ of geopolitics and examining how it is written unevenly across space, place, and bodies. I draw from frameworks in critical and feminist geopolitics, political ecology, decolonial philosophy, and diverse economies to ground action-oriented research related to how we produce knowledge as we ‘write the earth.’
My regional focus is the Americas, I conduct research in Mexico, the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and have previously worked in the Caribbean, Spain and the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
