I am a PhD Candidate at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Texas at Austin. I am interested in Literary and Cultural Studies, Critical Indigenous Studies, and Indigenous Languages. My research focuses on indigenous writing, coloniality, and Mesoamerican literature and civilization. As Indigenous Languages GRA at LLILAS Benson, I have developed Chqeta’maj le qach’ab’al K’iche’! (Let’s learn K’iche’!) The first open resource online course of Maya K’iche’, available at tzij.coerll.utexas.edu.
I am an international student from Belgium working on my dissertation in the interdisciplinary fields of Indigenous Studies and American Studies at the University of Washington English department in Seattle. I received my MA in English Literature and Linguistics and my MBA in Cultural Management from the University of Antwerp, Belgium. My research argues that Indigenous ways of knowing offer under-considered analytical tools for reading across the entire terrain of U.S. literature, especially in the second half of the 20th century. I have volunteered with the Quinault Indian Nation Elder program in different capacities since 2014, and am now working specifically on an intergenerational digital oral history project with the Quinault elder program and the Taholah high school. I teach undergraduate courses at the University of Washington in Native American literatures and research methods.
