Her work focuses on issues of nationality, race, gender, political theory, and postcoloniality. In her dissertation, she studies the counter-hegemonic discourse of short narratives from Argentina, Brazil, and Cuba, between the 1830’s and the 1920’s. She has published four articles in refereed journals such as The Latin Americanist, Hispanic Studies Review, Afro-Hispanic Review, and Ciberletras.
