anthropology of science; bioprospection and biocapital; biodiversity conservation; science and technology studies; feminist political ecology; rural ecologies and soil studies; post-conflict policies; futures; Colombia


My research explores how scientific knowledge is used to shape post-conflict futures in Colombia. I study how scientists, rural residents and government officials produce, circulate and use knowledge about biodiversity in regions dealing with the legacies of civil war. I hold a B.A in Sociology from National University of Colombia (with honors) and an M.A in Political Science from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá.

Prior to coming to Stanford, I was a researcher at Colombia's National Center for Historical Memory for five years.
