"The goal of much recent scholarship on Puerto Rican national identity has been to clarify the ideological underpinnings of nationalist discourses. My aim is to further interrogate nationalism by addressing its silences. The many voices who imagined the nation generally assumed a Creole "brotherhood" as the true forgers of national and cultural identity. In spite of its anti-colonial impulse, Creole cultural nationalism did not welcome women or Afro-Puerto Ricans in the national brotherhood."

"My research focuses on General Linguistics, notably on the construction of my mother tongue; the Ewe language (a language spoken in Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria). I am also interested in the translation of literary works from English into French."

"I am interested in methodological debates in economics and alternatives to neoclassical economics, the dominant paradigm in American economics. In my classes I try to illustrate how thinking about economics in different ways can lead to different conclusions about how to respond to macroeconomic and environmental challenges and how to think about political-economic topics like social inequality. I try to teach students how our thinking is often constrained in ways we are unaware of by paradigms, that is, by the theoretical spectacles we use to view the world."

"My laboratory uses kinetic, mechanistic, and computational approaches to determine the products formed and the rate constants of reactions of the hydroxyl radical and the chlorine atom with various anthropogenic substances. Of particular interest at this time is the study of fuel additives."

"As a performer, I continue to experiment with new approaches to jazz improvisation. As a musicologist I continue to focus my research on the relationships between jazz and the political and social climates surrounding different periods in jazz history. As a director, I emphasize a broad knowledge of both classic jazz repertoire and new innovations in jazz composition."
