Biography: 

Ricardo is a Gender Studies PhD Student who also received a Master’s in Geography from Syracuse University. He is a Travel and Research Grants reviewer for the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA). As a geographer who utilizes queer of color critique, Ricardo turns his gaze towards the ongoing gentrification process in Brooklyn, New York as a part of the invasion of Black queer and trans lives as well as the spaces they consider safe. His work attempts to bring geography and gender studies into conversation to explore the ways in which Black queer lives, particularly their safety, and queer sexual economies are impacted by gentrification. This moment of hyper-policing/surveilling of the Black body serves as a critical starting point in Ricardo’s work, which investigates the means to which Black queer and trans bodies take up strategies to ensure their safety.
