I teach courses in Latin American history and the history of illicit drugs. My courses pay particular attention to issues of race, class, and gender, and they highlight the ideas, experiences, and activism of indigenous peoples and peoples of African descent. I have supervised graduate students writing on a diverse range of topics, including Colombian drug history, Afro-Peruvian activism, and Nicaragua's Contras.
