Grant Associate Director of the Caribbean Digital Scholarship Collective


Digital Humanities Center


I am the Grant Associate Director of the Caribbean Digital Scholarship Collective, an initiative funded by the Mellon foundation that supports the growth and development of digital scholarship in and for the Caribbean. I am also a Doctoral candidate in History from UC Santa Barbara. My research, which intersects Latin American history, African diaspora studies, and digital humanities tools, examines how people of African descent contested and reshaped institutions, norms, and imperial geographies during the early modern period. My interest in public humanities has led me to work with organizations such as Neogranadina, a digital humanities non-profit based in Colombia, and the Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest at Villanova University.
