About Me

Brief Academic Biography

My love for multicultural literature, post-colonialism, and feminism grew out of my undergraduate experience at the University of Texas at Arlington. My Master’s program at Texas Christian University has only fostered my growing interest 13043784_10207341316068665_2967848724978370070_nin ecocriticism and ecofeminism in multicultural literature surrounding themes regarding disabilities, and queer studies. As a Chicana feminist, I am interesting in Latinx literature and the representation of the environment and animals. In the process of learning more about graduate studies and my field of interest, I have examined the state of higher education, literature, pedagogy, and found a new love in the digital humanities. My experience in graduate school has increasingly been transitioning from reading scholarship to creating scholarship. When I’m not researching, I enjoy playing with my cats,  playing raquetball, meditating through yoga, watching films and TV shows, learning new vegan recipes, spending time with friends and family, and exploring parks and gardens.
