I hold an MA in Hispanic Studies from the University of British Columbia and a BA Honours in Romance Languages from the University of Alberta. My research interests include Latin American visual and popular culture (especially comics and graphic novels), ecocriticism, and urban and regional identities. Currently, I am interested in examining the portrayal of shamanic figures in popular culture and how they may contribute to new and better ways of imagining the relationship between humans and the non-human world.
