I am a cultural politics scholar, artist and educator. I have a PhD in Social and Cultural Analysis (King's College London), an MA in Anthropology and Cultural Politics (Goldsmiths) and a BA in Art History and Cultural Management (Universidad del Salvador, Argentina).

My recent publications include the edited collection artWORK: Art, Labour and Activism, co-edited with Alberto Cossu and Jessica Holtaway (Rowman & Littlefield International, 2018) and the monograph Performance Action: The Politics of Art Activism (Routledge, 2018). My current research is an exploration of the relationship between culture and extractivism in Argentina, focusing on issues of narrative, power, and decoloniality.
