About Me

DSC05815I am a lecturer in the Center for Latin American Studies at San Diego State University and the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California and a Ph.D. candidate in Latin American and World History at the University of Arizona, completing my dissertation titled “Exercising the Cosmic Race: Mexican Sporting Culture and Mestizo Citizens” on physical culture, race science, gender, and citizenship in modern Mexico.  I have undergraduate and graduate teaching and research experience in Latin American, World, and U.S. history, anthropology, religious studies, mixed methodologies, and economics.

I intend to use this site as a professional portfolio and eventually as a regular blog on which to speak on personal and professional issues relevant to the profession or current events.
