She holds a Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literature at Stony Brook University. Her first book-length manuscript, Framing the Margin: Nationality and Sexuality Across Borders, was published in 2008 and won the international competition for the Victoria Urbano Monograph Prize of the Asociación Internacional de Literatura y Cultura Femenina Hispánica. Her articles appear in The Journal of Language and Sexuality; Studies in Documentary Film; Studies in Spanish and Latin American Cinemas (formerly Studies in Hispanic Cinemas); Letras Femeninas; and Romance Review. She has traveled regularly to Havana to conduct research since 2012, with intensive work in the archives of Cuba's Cinemateca and in consultation with its director, Luciano Castillo. In 2015, as a visiting scholar of NYU's Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, she gave a lecture on homoerotic subjectivities in Cuban film. In 2016, she co-directed a research trip to Havana with students of her course on Cuban cinema and those of a colleague's course on translation. Students heard from and interviewed faculty and directors from both of the island's film schools. She has organized several lectures on Dickinson's campus by Cuban directors and film scholars.
