I am an architect, a historian, and a teacher. My work examines how different publics relate to each other through spatial practices of power and resistance, with particular focus on the modernity of the American continent and its transcontinental flows. I am Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. I hold a PhD in the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture from MIT, an M.Des.S. with distinction from the Harvard GSD, an M.Arch. from Georgia Tech, and an architecture and urbanism diploma from the Universidad Católica de Santiago de Guayaquil. For the AY 2020-21 I am the Charles P. Brauer Faculty Fellow at the UMich Institute for the Humanities. My pronouns are she/ella.
I labor at the University of Michigan. I acknowledge this institution resides on the occupied territories of the Three Fire Peoples—the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi. As I work and live on these territories I recognize Indigenous sovereignty, the ongoing effects of colonization and colonial state violence, and the global struggle for self-determination of Indigenous communities.
