Marie Curie Research Fellow, University of Amsterdam
I am a human geographer who focuses on urban geography.
I am an urban geographer and a Research Fellow in EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Program, project title: Weaponizing Social Housing in Rio de Janeiro and Medellín. My research focuses on housing and securitization in urban Latin America and beyond. I explore emerging forms of governability in the urban peripheries of Medellin and Rio de Janeiro. While my project is located at the University of Amsterdam, I am Visiting Scholar in the Weatherhead Scholars Program at Harvard University, from 2021-23.
At Protein Matters, I am Co-PI, supervising and coordinating the individual research projects, taking a specific interest in the securitization of global food protein production chains.
