I'm a senior research specialist at the Getty Research Institute, a scholar of Pre-Columbian art history, and co-curator of the exhibition Golden Kingdoms: Luxury Arts in the Ancient Americas. My specialty is Huastec art produced by a pre-Hispanic culture located on the northern Gulf Coast of Mexico. I am currently the co-head of the Florentine Codex initiative, focused on a beautifully painted, 16th-century encyclopedia from Mexico written in Spanish and Nahuatl (the language of the Aztecs).
