Biography


I studied my BA in History at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, and later moved to Budapest, Hungary in order to pursue an MA in Gender Studies with Distinction from the Central European University. I am currently in my second year of the PhD program at the University of Texas at Austin, where I am also a ConTex Doctoral Fellow.

My main research interest is archival history and practice. Currently, my research project is a cultural history of the 'National Archive' of Mexico in the early nineteenth century. Furthermore, this academic year I will be co-coordinating the 2022 Lozano Long Conference in honor of the centennial of the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection alongside Dr. Lina del Castillo and Rafael Nieto-Bello. The conference is planned to be a dialogue on archives with Latin American perspectives.
