Research interests

I have a PhD in Education (University of Bristol), a Master’s in Public Policy (School of Economics, University of Chile) and a bachelor’s in Journalism. This background has informed my research interests and helped me navigate through themes, communities and contexts. I am particularly interested in exploring and understanding the exercise and limitations of sustainable practices within unequal and challenging contexts in the Global South. To this end, I am deeply engaged with political ecology & political economy approaches and qualitative research methods shaped by human geography and engagement methodologies across disciplines. Most of my current research involves interdisciplinary collaborations and projects in Colombia (sustainable food production) and Chile (privatization and marketization of education).

From a background in Journalism, I have a significant commitment and expertise regarding a critical area: communication of research. I have co-developed media outlets to build bridges between media and academia (TerceraDosis, Ciper Académico) and contribute to public debates in Chile and Latin America. Due to my interdisciplinary background and international experience, I have worked collaboratively with researchers, NGOs, and communities in South America, Africa, and the UK.
