I am a historian of modern Latin America, specializing in the political history of post-revolutionary Mexico and US-Latin American relations. In both my teaching and my research, I highlight the social, political, and cultural connections that bind together the countries of the Americas. My current work examines Mexican asylum policy, using the Mexican government’s relations with political asylum-seekers as a window onto foreign relations during the 1940s and 1950s. My previous work has explored themes of gender, solidarity, and human rights in the Americas. A native of British Columbia, I am happy to be back on the west coast after earning a PhD in Latin American History at Stony Brook University in 2018.
