I am an associate professor of Geography at the University of Washington in Seattle; an adjunct associate professor with the American Indian Studies and Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies Departments; and affiliate faculty with UW Center for Human Rights and Comparative History of Ideas Department. I research race, nature and migrations, with a focus on environmental justice and Latinidades across the Américas.
I like reading and hiking with my dog more than webinars; you can check out my reading lists on goodreads.
I am on sabbatical during autumn and spring quarters this year to get some writing done. In Winter 2021, I will teach undergraduate courses on Abolition Geographies and Environmental Justice. If you are applying to UW's geography graduate program (MA/PhD), please look over my advising page before you write me an email.
I live and work on the lands and waters of the Lushootseed-speaking Peoples; the dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish), Muckleshoot, spuyaləpabš (Puyallup), Suquamish, and Tulalip. I am committed to creating space for these and other Indigenous peoples through my teaching, research, and service.
