I am an associate professor of Geography at the University of Washington in Seattle. My work engages with abolition as praxis, Latinx geographies, and environmental justice. I like reading and hiking with my dog more than webinars.
I am on sabbatical in Autumn 2021 and will be focused on research and writing. I will co-facilitate a graduate seminar with Jean Dennison on Indigenous Methodologies and an undergraduate class on Race, Nature & Power in the 2021-2022 school-year. If you are applying to UW's geography graduate program (MA/PhD), please look over my advising page and then write me an email.
I live and work on the lands and waters of the Salish Sea: the homelands of the dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish), Muckleshoot, spuyaləpabš (Puyallup), dxʷsəqʷəb (Suquamish), and Tulalip nations. I am committed to creating space for these and other Indigenous peoples through my teaching, research, and service.
