M.A. Student

Graduate Teaching Assistant

I am an M.A. student in the School of Geography & Development. My research currently centers on critical geographies of education as examined through the lenses of critical race theory and critical pedagogy. I am interested in the ways in which compulsory schools construct place for different students and aid in the social reproduction and identity formation of students of color, women, and queer students. I am also interested in the ways that the neoliberalization, privatization, and militarization of compulsory schools intersect with placemaking and identity formation. 


Before beginning graduate studies at the University of Arizona, I completed degrees in History and Ethnic Studies at Boise State University (2018).
