About my work
I research and teach in the areas of Latin American and Latinx philosophy, moral psychology, and critical philosophy of race.
In Latin American and Latinx philosophy, I write about Mexican American and Latin American metaphilosophy, and about decolonial theory, immigration, and Latina feminism. I am currently co-editor of the APA Newsletter on Hispanic/Latino Issues in Philosophy
In moral psychology, I investigate the impacts of empathy on moral perception, judgment and motivation. I also examine the ways that our moral agency is shaped by our social environment, and I explore various obstacles and opportunities for moral growth.
