Writing

I write in a variety of formats for a variety of different audiences including blog posts,  journalistic pieces, and essays.  Topics of focus include health+ climate justice, gender + sexuality, kinship + caregiving, environmental science and technology, race, and settler-colonialism.

Academic Writing

As a scholar, I map the ways settler-colonialism shapes agroecological systems and land governance in the Caribbean (i.e. the US colony of Puerto Rico). Additionally, I study Traditional Ecological Knowledges (TEKs) that counteract the environmental, ecological, and social consequences of extractive settler-colonization. Relatedly, I'm invested in transnational environmental justice work that builds on/supports Black/Indigenous solidarity globally. These lines of work stem from my familial/ancestral  responsibility to care for island ecologies and peoples.
