I am a PhD candidate in Latin American history. My dissertation, “Now I Walk on Foreign Soil: Experiences of Settler Colonialism in Argentina’s Southern Borderlands, 1867-1890,” traces the history of settler colonialism, state formation, and Indigenous resistance in nineteenth-century Argentina. My research also considers the connections among settler colonial projects pursued in various regions of the world throughout the nineteenth century.
I am a graduate affiliate with the Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies and the Yale Group for the Study of Native America. I have previously coordinated the Latin American History Speaker Series and the Latin American Studies Working Group, and I co-founded the Summer Dissertation Workshop in Latin American and Caribbean History.
