Contemporary Chicanx, Latinx, and Latin American art and visual/material culture. Borderlands, transborder politics, and the colonial body.
Research Interests: 

My current research explores how contemporay Chicanx and Mexican artists are using textiles and textile arts to address the socio-political conditions of the borderlands. Other research interests include: Chicanx and Mexican altars as sites of embodied knowledge, visualizing migration narratives, social media as alternative archives for Chicanx histories, intersectional theory, and activist art. 

I am also on the editorial board of Refract: An Open Access Visual Studies Journal.
