I am Senior Lecturer in Latin American Cultural Studies in the department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies. I am also Co-Director of the Centre for Latin American & Caribbean Studies.

My research focuses on Latin American urban imaginaries, particularly those of Buenos Aires, and on Latin American cultural production, especially photography and comics. I am currently the principal investigator of the international network Comics and the Latin American City, funded by The Leverhulme Trust.

I am the author of City in Common: Culture and Community in Buenos Aires (SUNY, 2016) and co-editor of Comics and Memory in Latin America (Pittsburgh, 2017).
