Biography

Research Interests

My interests are focused on dystopia, politics and society in Latin American popular culture. In particular, my research to date has explored the representation of science and technology in Argentine films, genre cinemas in Latin America (including the fantastic and science fiction), non-naturalistic cinemas and literature in Argentine culture, and the representation of the city in Latin American cinema.
