Guillermo Douglass-Jaimes

Activity Director of LxG

Guillermo Douglass-Jaimes (he/him/his) the son of Mexican immigrants, is a first-generation college graduate and Assistant Professor in the Environmental Analysis Program at Pomona College. His work is situated in global health equity, and is driven by an interest and inquiry in how conceptions of place and identity can be products of social marginalization as well as sources for community resilience. Guillermo is excited to connect with Latinx scholars through the LxGSG and use these relationships to identify, develop, and share ways of breaking down the explicit and implicit barriers to, and within, formalized education. In his spare time he enjoys tending to his succulent garden and is starting to learn wood working to hopefully build more interesting planters for all those plants. You can find him at @gdouglassjaimes on Twitter and on Instagram.
