My research interests include intercultural communication in media and social media involving Latinx and immigrant audiences and users. Some areas I am currently exploring are: understanding how culture lives on social media; understanding social media influencers and their roles across cultures; understanding Latinx culture in social media. Furthermore, as part of UM’s COVID-19 Observatory, I participate in research about the pandemic in Latin America and the Caribbean, mostly emphasizing in Brazil and Mexico.
