Post-Baccalaureate Fellow 2021-2023


Digital Humanities Center, Library


I am the current Post-Baccalaureate Fellow for the Digital Humanities Center. I received my BA in Africana studies from Barnard College, where I was also a Mellon Mays fellow and a Barbara Horowitz ’55 Scholar of Distinction. 

As a visual artist, researcher, and educator who works with text, images, and natural materials to create stories that highlight the experiences of disempowered and displaced communities, my research interests include: Caribbean cultural studies, queer history & activism, Black feminism(s), critical pedagogies, digital mapping & archiving, speculative fiction & non-fiction, vernacular photography, and visual storytelling.

On the weekends, I teach photography workshops at Penumbra Foundation, skateboard with my sister, and press fallen leaves for use in future artworks. You can find more of my work here:
