My research and teaching focus on Mexican literary and cultural studies, modern and contemporary Latin American literature, formalism, geocriticism, theory of the novel, and hemispheric modernisms.

My current book project examines how the Mexican modernist novel gives spatial form to Mexico's uneven transition from state-led industrialization toward a new export-oriented pattern of capital accumulation. My broader research interests include urban studies, border and migration studies, and the novel’s countertopographical imagination.
