I am the Director of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities. In this position, I want to encourage and support students to understand themselves as scholars who  contribute important knowledge and creative works to the university and community. Prior to my role with URCA, I received my PhD in the UCSB Department of Feminist Studies where I taught and designed many classes, including and undergraduate research seminar. My own research examines how the women's professional tennis tour globally circulates ideas about gender, sexuality, and race.

In my free time, I like to visit tennis tournaments, sail, and hike.
