She is Assistant Professor in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University where she leads criticalMediaArtsStudio (cMAS). cMAS is an interdisciplinary research studio that produces work that interrogates how old and new technologies have and continue to shape our sense of self through a theoretical lens informed by media archaeology and, feminist and postcolonial theory.
She has published articles on Latin American feminist media in Media-N, The Journal of the New Media Caucus, Platform: Journal of Media and Communication, and Artelogie: Recherches sur les arts, le patrimoine et la littérature de l’Amérique latine. Her award-winning research on the role of feminism(s) in the development of Mexico’s mediascapes after 1968 is forthcoming with University of Nebraska Press. Her multimedia installations combining video and performance have been exhibited in Canada, Mexico, India, and Chile, and most recently her work was shown in Paris in the Computer Art Congress. Currently, she is researching the impact of digital technologies on the archival practices of female activists and artists across the Americas, and investigating the practices of women working at the intersections of art and technology in Latin America with a specific interest in interactive art and electroacoustic music.
