Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a PhD student in Social and Cultural Anthropology. My research will combine methods from anthropology and developmental psychology to explore and compare how children in Santa Marta, Colombia, and Helsinki, Finland, 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 a doctoral employee and was previously funded by the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (SYLFF; 5.2020 - 4.2021).
