Madelaine (she/her) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography, Environment & Society at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis and Co-Chair of the LxGSG. I explore Latinx urban politics, place-making and decolonial feminist activism in Toronto, Canada. I am thrilled to continue to be a part of LxGSG and work with a collective of dedicated people to create enriching spaces of mutual support, mentorship and community-building. I am the proud daughter of immigrant parents and mother to a hilarious and energetic toddler who shares my love for telling stories.

I am an Assistant Professor in Geography and Environmental Systems at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. As a Mexican immigrant and Feminist Human Geographer whose life has been intimately touched by global forces of displacement, issues of migration borders and race are fundamental in my work. As an active board member, I am excited to continue to co-create a space for us, for our community of Latinx students, faculty, activists, artists, etc.
