Ignangeli Salinas-Muñiz

Graduate Research Fellow

Ignangeli Salinas-Muñiz is a Ph.D. candidate in the Political Science Department at the University of Michigan and an NSF Graduate Fellowship Program Fellow. Her research centers representation, accountability, and decolonial possibility in non-sovereign spaces. She particularly focuses on the U.S. territories and other U.S. geographical pockets where racial and ethnic minorities experience limited democracy. However, her interest in United States imperialism guides her work at various intersections. Prior to attending the University of Michigan, she earned her B.A. in Political Science from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez. She is also an alum of the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute and the Summer Research Opportunities Program.
