What I Do 

As a Graduate Student Researcher at the Office of Public Scholarship and Engagement, I primarily work on research-related tasks such as literature reviews and data analysis. I am currently working on two projects: a historiography of the faculty tenure and promotion process, and an analysis of the ecosystem of relationships between UC Davis and community engagement partners. 

More About Me

I am a PhD student in Geography with a Designated Emphasis in Feminist Theory and Research. I am originally from Mendoza, Argentina. My research examines relationships between agriculture producers and consumers in alternative food systems, and the social and political conditions that contribute to small farm resilience.
