About Me

I am a historian and anthropologist with professional experience in research, education, and projects for the public interest. As a researcher I examine the ways people of African descent contested and reshaped institutions, norms, and imperial geographies during the early modern period. As an educator I have taught courses on global history and Latin America using dynamic methods to help students foster their writing skills and make critical connections between the past and contemporary issues. As a public historian, I am passionate about making specialized information accessible to broad audiences. I have worked with different initiatives implementing digital humanities and public history methods to preserve and promote humanistic knowledge. I am part of the team behind Neogranadina, a non-profit organization that uses novel digital tools for the digitization, processing, and promotion of Latin America historical heritage.
