I focus on Latin American Cultural Studies and Indigenous Studies. I'm interested in studying the permanence and changes of colonialism, and the adapting negotiations and struggles of Indigenous peoples in Latin America. While my research addresses indigeneity, colonial dispossession, and racialization for the production and reproduction of capitalism in modern Chile, I study these formations in relation to the differentiation of Indigenous and other racialized populations during homogenizing processes of capitalist accumulation and nation-state formation across the Americas and the Pacific.
