    My research interests revolve around the relation between cultural products and identity formation processes. I am particularly interested on how identity performances deployed through music, for example, can reproduce and subvert hegemonic notions of race, gender, and nation. Furthermore, I want to explore how Puerto Rico's cultural politics during its current political and economical crisis affect said deployments.
