AboutI currently work as a bilingual access services assistant at Multnomah County Library’s Gregory Heights branch and am pursuing my MLS through Emporia State University, where I also serves as a graduate research assistant. My research interests include feminist film studies–particularly at the intersections of gender, race, sexuality, and affect–cultural studies, critical librarianship, and the digital humanities.
