She was a SUB30 artist in residence at Fundación ACE, Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2014. She has worked on video projections for theatrical and musical productions by director Natalia Lassalle-Morillo and composers Chris Ryan Williams and Samora Pinderhughes. She has designed sound for various award winning animated shorts by her CalArts colleagues, including "Las del diente" by Ana Pérez López, which screened this year in SXSW and ArcLight Hollywood as Slamdance Film Festival Official Selection.  Her installations often speak on ideas of deterritorialization and the air of melancholy that arises from displacement. ​​​​​​​
