Assistant Professor of Art History, Curator of the Wriston Art Center Galleries and Museum Studies Interdisciplinary Area Program Director

I teach courses on the history and theory of photography, museum studies, global modernisms, and contemporary art. In addition to an active curatorial practice, I write about photography from Cuba and the Cuban diaspora. 

My work as curator extends beyond the Wriston Art Galleries, including care for the Teakwood Room, a historic room in Chapman Hall, and public sculptures on campus like Otāēciah, in Kaeyes Mamaceqtawuk Plaza. I am also a board member for the Trout Museum of Art in downtown Appleton and the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries
