Welcome – Bienvenido – Bem vindo – Tapeguahe porã

I am a human-environment geographer and Latin American studies scholar whose work transgresses disciplinary boundaries while contributing to critical scholarship in political ecology, environmental justice, and development studies.

My research and writing investigate struggles for justice and emancipatory futures in the context of radical social-ecological change in Latin America. Much of that work examines dynamics of large-scale infrastructure development, expanding extractive frontiers, deforestation, Indigenous rights, territorialities, and social movements.  

As an Assistant Professor in the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida (UF), I coordinate the Indigenous Studies Specialization for the Masters in Latin American Studies. At UF, I am also a core faculty member of the Tropical Conservation and Development Program as well as the Masters in Sustainable Development Practice. I am a faculty affiliate of the Department of Geography, School of Natural Resources and Environment, and American and Indigenous Studies Program.

Please take a look around and feel free to contact me with questions or potential collaborations.
