I study women’s and gender history in twentieth-century Latin America. My current research interests involve women’s health care and feminist movements in the Andes. 
In 2014 I graduated from the women’s history department at Sarah Lawrence College, where I was the winner of the 2014 Gerda Lerner Prize in Women’s History. My thesis, titled “Bodies and Stories: Toward a New Narrative of Reproductive Injustice in 1990s Peru,” has become the basis for my doctoral work.  
In addition to Latin American history, I enjoy studying art history, religious women, and early American history. 
Please feel free to contact me regarding interest in the history program or my work.
