About Me

I am a fourth-year PhD student in philosophy at Queen's University, under the supervision of Will Kymlicka.

I completed my BA in philosophy at California State University, Fullerton, and my MA in philosophy at Dalhousie University. My Master's thesis focused on Kantian perspectives on animal embodiment, personhood, and human dignity. My interests in philosophy are broad, but can be placed under the umbrellas of critical animal studies, political philosophy, philosophy of race, and philosophy of biology.

Outside of philosophy, I enjoy reading and translating Spanish poetry, reading sci-fi and literature, board games, cooking Mexican food, weightlifting, and lazing around.
