I am a Chicana ethnic studies scholar and feminist geographer. My areas of expertise include Chicanx and Latinx studies, women of color feminisms, environmental justice studies, and public health. I am currently researching and writing on environmental racism in the Los Angeles Harbor region of Southern California. My work examines the spatial and scalar relationships and disjunctures between air pollution regulation, the U.S. health care safety-net, the mother-work of promotoras de salud, and the (im)possibilities for environmental justice in a racial capitalist landscape designed for the never-ending expansion of global trade. As both a researcher and teacher, I am invested in collaborative intellectual projects that disrupt hegemonic knowledge formations in the academy and beyond it.
