I was born and raised in Argentina, and have lived in the United States for over a quarter century. My scholarly interests and institution building efforts reflect this identity. Over the past decade this has materialized in a series of initiatives designed to help facilitate productive conversations at the intersection of Latin American and Latinx experiences.
In 2015 Eugenia Mitchelstein and I founded the Center for the Study on Media and Society in Argentina (MESO) as a joint initiative between Universidad de San Andrés and Northwestern University devoted to research and outreach on media, culture and digital technology.
In 2019 Eugenia Mitchesltein and I created this annual preconference at the International Communication Association to showcase research on digital media in Latinx USA and Latin America.. I am part of a team of ten scholars who currently co-organizes this event.
In 2020 I founded the Center for Latinx Digital Media at Northwestern University. It aims to create knowledge about digital media in Latinx communities across the Americas.
Later in fall 2020, I will host this podcast where some of the leading voices in the field of communication and media studies will share their professional experiences as Latinx scholars.
