Biography, Education and Training

I am a PhD student in the Politics Department at UCSC. I hold a Master’s degree in Media Studies from Erasmus University Rotterdam and my research interests include sub-state nationalism, migration, globalization, and comparative politics.


I am currently working as a GSR for Dr Pedroza in the Sociology Dep and in Fall 2019, I will be TAing for Politics of Social Policy and working as a Graduate Research Mentor for the Cultivamos Excelencia program; a collaboration between UCSC and SJCC that strives to increase the academic success of LatinX students.


I am part of the CIRF - Interdepartmental Center for the Development of the Language and Culture of Friuli. 

I am also the Regional Liaison (Europe) for BESS, the Black Europe Summer School.
