My research focuses on intersectional feminism in contemporary Hispanic Caribbean, U.S. Latino/a/x, and Brazilian-American or “Brazuca” novels and short stories. After completing several collaborative projects related to the Peruvian Amazon, I  also have an interest in ecocriticism, the environmental imagination, and the cultural production of indigenous Amazonia.
