About

I'm a recent Queen's graduate returning to work with my wonderful supervisor, Nancy van Deusen. My research is centered around the Cultural and colonial history of Latin America and the Caribbean. I am focused primarily on the histories of people of African descent in those regions, and their unique lived experiences. Outside of my studies I enjoying studying the Spanish language, and spent the last year living and working in the Dominican Republic.
