My work uses design to explore social, cultural, and political issues, especially as these relate to globalization and decoloniality. For the past several years, my primary site of research has been southern Mexico, where I have pursued two main threads: 1) the Design for Development (D4D) initiative, in which I and my students partner with Maya artisan-entrepreneurs to develop, brand, and market their products; and 2) the Mira Project, in which I explore the visual representation of Mexican-ness through creative work and writing.
