I am a doctoral candidate at the dissertation stage. Prior to joining the Ph.D. program in 2011, I taught American History, World History, and Western Civilizations at various colleges in the Central Florida area, including the University of Central Florida, Valencia College, and Seminole State College.
My current research is focused upon the Caribbean and Latin America from a transatlantic and global perspective – to include West Africa, Europe, and the America’s in context. Specifically my doctoral dissertation looks at abolitionism as a transnational movment in this transatlantic context during the late nineteenth century.
I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico and I am fully fluent in English and Spanish with some competency in French and Portuguese.
Additionally, I am married, I live in a school bus, and I have a dog named Finn.
