I am a designer, researcher, and associate professor of graphic design at the University of Florida. I explore issues that are social, cultural, and political, especially as these relate to globalization and decoloniality. My primary site of research is southern Mexico, where I pursue two main threads…
1) the Design for Development (D4D) initiative, in which I and my students partner with Maya artisan-entrepreneurs to develop, brand, and market their products; and 2) the Mira Project, in which I explore the visual representation of Mexican-ness through creative work and writing.
