Profile

I joined PAIS in October 2019. Prior to that, I worked as a public policy adviser and researcher on security, human mobility and global institutions for over ten years, mostly in Colombia. I also taught various courses in International Studies at the undergraduate and graduate levels during the same period, at the del Rosario University (Bogota). I completed an MSc in Global History at the London School of Economics (UK) , an MA in Global Studies at the University of Leipzig (Germany), and a BA in International Relations at the del Rosario University.

Research

My current research focuses on contested practices and changing conceptions of sovereignty in cross-border migration from Venezuela along the South American Andes after Covid-19. My supervisors are Vicki Squire and Tom Long.
