I recently earned a PhD in Hispanic Literatures & Cultural Studies with a minor in Portuguese from Indiana University-Bloomington. My dissertation title is “Martyrdom and Testimony in Central America during the Cold War: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua (1970-1990).” My research focuses on testimonial discourses from a Transatlantic point of view.
Before becoming a teaching faculty member at Penn State, I taught Spanish language, linguistics, and Hispanic culture at the University of Malta and Indiana University, along with summer study abroad programs in Spain, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic.
