Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a PhD student in Social and Cultural Anthropology. My research will take a cognitive anthropology approach, combining methods from anthropology and developmental psychology to explore how children in Santa Marta, Colombia, learn, conceptualise and enact social hierarchies.

Before coming to Helsinki I was awarded an MSc in Demography and Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a BA in Human Sciences from the University of Oxford. I also worked for several years in English and bilingual education in Colombia. From 2014-2015 I carried out a pre-PhD research year in Genetic Epidemiology at the University of Bristol, UK.

I am currently a SYLFF Fellow (04.2020-04.2021), funded by the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund.
