RESEARCH INTERESTS
My current research focuses on contemporary Dominican theater and performance that addresses the experience of migration and challenges hegemonic notions of citizenship and national belonging.  I also have a long-term pan-Caribbean project that examines the interrelationship of race, colonialism, and performance in the Hispanophone, Anglophone, and Francophone Caribbean.
