Class of 2010

A.A. Bilingual Bi-Cultural Studies, Cabrillo College, 2008
I am currently living in downtown Riverside as a Ph.D student in Ethnic Studies at UCR (ethnicstudies.ucr.edu) and volunteering with a community re-entry home for recently incarcerated women in South LA. My dissertation project is interested in looking at histories of gendered scientific racism and contemporary forms of policing and punishment in California.
I wanted to share some amazing news with the Feminist Studies Department. I recently started a Ph.d in Ethnic Studies at UC Riverside and applied to the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellows Program for Predoctoral students and the Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship. I received Honorable Mention from the NSF and I was offered the Ford Fellowship!
I am so thrilled and excited as a 1st year graduate student. I could not have been such a strong applicant without the guidance, support, and training I received from the Feminist Studies Faculty and graduate students who were my TAs and mentors.
Feminist Science Studies; Prison Studies; Queer Theories; Formations of Citizenship and Identity; Labor and Migration Histories.
