I am a PhD student in Sociology at the University of Minnesota and fellow at the Interdisciplinary Center for Global Change (ICGC). I have a MA in Anthropology of Development and Social Transformation from the University of Sussex and a BA in Development in Latin America from Harvard University.
I envision my PhD dissertation will be on the processes of reconciliation and reintegration in Colombia, with a comparative component on Northern Ireland.
With the support of the Grand Challenges Human Rights Lab, I spent the summer of 2017 in Belfast conducting research in collaboration with Dr. Joachim Savelsberg on associational groups, memories, and transitions to peace. While in Northern Ireland I was a Visiting Scholar at the Transitional Justice Institute at Ulster University.
During the summer of 2018, I will be doing exploratory fieldwork in Colombia and a Visiting Scholar at Centro de Estudios Sociales, Universidad Nacional.
