What are your thoughts on teaching?
Critical and inclusive education is an important tool for liberation, transformation, and transgression. 

Tell us about your field of expertise
I specialize in Afro-Brazilian culture and literature written by women. My current book project focuses on how some Afro-Brazilian women authors use their literature to defy assigned spaces in Brazil. Other areas of interest are Lusophone Studies, Black Studies, Afro-Caribbean, and Cultural Studies.

What hobbies/interests do you enjoy outside of academia?
I love spending time outside, biking, chatting with friends, and exciting TV shows like “Pose.”
