I am a third-year doctoral student at William & Mary interested in historical memory. Specifically, I explore place, space, and cultural productions following civil wars and conflicts in the United States, Spain, and Latin America in the 20th and 21st centuries. I also research the role of monuments, memorials, and mausoleums in shifting the political and cultural landscapes of regions attempting to commemorate their pasts.
I received my M.A. in History from William & Mary (2020) with my thesis portfolio entitled “Memory as a Tool of Resignation/The Contested Nature of Constructing National Identity” and B.A. in History and Spanish from Duke University (2019), graduating Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude. I earned Highest Distinction for my undergraduate double honors thesis “Making Memory Matter: The Asociación para la Recuperación de la Memoria Histórica and Spain’s Efforts to Reclaim the Past.” I am a recipient of the Walter J. Zable Graduate Fellowship and was awarded the Carl J. Strikwerda Award for Excellence at the 2020 William & Mary Graduate Research Symposium.
