My research interests lie at the intersection of body/embodiment theory and racialization. My Masters thesis consisted of an eighteen-month ethnography in the New York Tri-state area, foregrounding body and embodiment as a theoretical intervention in the racialization of Latinas. It unveiled how Latinas manage their participation in erotic labor utilizing constructions of Latinidad – particularly embodiment cues that reflect their experiences with racialization.
