Yale University

Miami-raised researcher, writer, and multimedia artist interested in topics of race and ethnicity, settler colonialism, policing, spatial inequality, social stratification, urban communities, and gender. Their past work examining redistricting, urbanization, and policing at the UChicago Justice Project helped them develop skills in research, project management, data visualization, spatial analysis, and archival work, culminating in papers in Social Problems and The University of Chicago Law Review.

A Ph.D. student in Sociology at Yale University and Graduate Fellow with the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, their current research examines the relationship between urbanization and ongoing settler colonialism, how the state defines, polices, and prisonizes neighborhoods, as well as the spaces created by marginalized communities to organize, remember their histories, reimagine their futures, and challenge racial capitalism. They are also interested in attitudes towards “Latinx” among Latines.
