I am the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital and Visual Storytelling for the Carceral Connecticut Project at Wesleyan University. I am a digital humanist and immigration historian who specializes in the study of Latinx history, race and ethnicity, oral history, and transnationalism.

My current book project, Mexican Corridors: Migration and Placemaking in the Lower Midwest, is a transnational account and analysis of ethnic Mexican life in Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. It is complemented by the digital history project, “Mapping the Mexican Midwest,” which I launched in early 2021.

Prior to my arrival at Wesleyan, I launched and davanced digital humanities and oral history projects at Dartmouth College, such as the Dartmouth Digital History Initiative, the Dartmouth Vietnam Project, and Dartmouth Black Lives.
