Q-vole. I’m a family oriented lowriding educator, multi-media producer, Latinamericanist communication scholar, and politically active Chicano from SoCal. I am currently a lecturer in the UCSD Department of Communication.

My work is interdisciplinary – I specialize in political communication, Latin American studies, Chicana/o studies, mediatization theory, sociocultural theory, and critical pedagogy. My doctoral training has provided me with a strong background in critical theories of the media, and expertise in multiple research methods. My current research is focused on the relationship between mediated political communication and political culture, as well as how sociocultural theories of learning influence the design of sociotechnical systems in secondary education.
