Lecturer at the Department of Philosophy at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). I am researcher for the National Research System (Level 1) in Mexico, and Chair of the Feminist Caucus and Social Media Editor for the American Society for Aesthetics. I work on Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art, Political Philosophy and Feminist Studies.

I have been a member of various research projects at the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, where I was Visiting Professor in the Digital Art and Media Program, the Institute of Philosophical Research at UNAM, where I was Postdoctoral Fellow, and the Department of Philosophy at UNAM.

Currently, I am working on a research for a book on social practice art. I am member of the project “Medium and Species: Ecology and evolution from the perspective of natural philosophy” at UNAM and I am co-organizing the project “Intersectional and Decolonial Feminism and Violence in America” as a result of a collaboration between UNAM and Northwestern University.

I am also member of the research and artistic group Arte + Ciencia. I have worked as an independent curator for many contemporary art museums and exhibition venues and I am currently co-curating an exhibition program based on participatory art at the Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City.
