I graduated with BAs in Spanish and International Studies (Latin America concentration) from North Carolina State University in 2015. I graduated with an MA in history also from NC State in July 2022, where my coursework focused on early modern European history of science. My thesis explored race and identity in 18th century New Spain. I was awarded the Chancellor’s Doctoral Fellowship here at the University of Kansas and I intend to use that funding to continue the research I started with my thesis. I also plan on completing the Indigenous Studies Graduate Certificate. I am generally interested in early modern and Enlightenment constructions of race and science as a tool of empire.
