I am a first-generation Chicano scholar-activist/anthropologist who studies the political and cultural resonance of social movements. In particular, the resonance of indigenous social movements on Chicanas/os and “people of color” in the United States.
I teach courses on Chicanx history, culture, ethnography, migration, and criminality. I am the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award at UC Berkeley 2022. I am also the director of the Ethnic Studies Changemaker project. (ssbc.berkeley.edu)
My teaching experience is extensive. I have taught introductory classes in Anthropology and Chicano Studies, as well as undergraduate/graduate topic seminars. I facilitate talks and workshops on decolonial thought in the United States, Mexico, and Spain.
