you are on native land

Phd Student on the ancestral and unceded land of the Tongva @ UCLA; Instructor on Payaya/Coahuiltecan lands @ UTSA

My work situates colonialism and settler colonialism as central forces in the creation and maintenance of computer and internet technologies and their attendant material infrastructures.

My feminist pedagogical praxis signals a commitment to understanding the intersections of systemic forms of oppression and working towards a just future.
