Since 2003 I´m a professor at the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (UASLP). My research interests are indigenous languages and cultures, oral traditions, language documentation and revitalization (especially through internet resources), indigenous literacies, intercultural literature, and collaborative research. I also work on themes regarding culture and environment, in particular disaster risk management (vulnerability, risk perception, geomythology). My approach is interdisciplinary, as I try to understand language (literature and linguistics) in/through culture, usually through collaborations with people from other disciplines (computer engineers, geographers, biologists, linguists). In my current project we are translating stories in indigenous languages to promote children´s engagement in literacy experiences in their mother tongue:

My teaching and supervising activities are at the undergraduate program in Anthropology and the postgraduate programs in Latin American Studies (PELTSC) and Environmental Studies (PMPCA). With respect to management duties, I have been in charge of (or have participated in) a wide range of committees and work groups on curriculum development, employee assessment, Faculty funding, and strategic planning.
