I am a Venezuelan-born media educator, researcher, and practitioner. Before joining this program, I came to the United States on a Fulbright Scholarship and got an MA in Media Studies from The New School. Broadly speaking, my research focuses on understandings of the body as a medium for knowledge and their potential impact on pedagogical practices. I am also interested in public scholarship, informal learning, and how creative practices are used/adapted as research and teaching methodologies.
