I am a researcher and global policy network lead at the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), University of Oxford. In this role I provide strategic leadership to the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network, a network of nearly 60 governments and 20 international organisations that implement or are in the process of implementing official multidimensional poverty measures. The network hosts annual meetings in host countries and organises high level side events at the united Nations General Assembly in New York.
My research focuses on food and agricultural systems. Specifically I analyse the negotiations between the Colombian government and agrarian movements that both parties initiated after the 2013 and 2014 national agrarian strikes. With the goal of shining light on the role of interactions among actors holding different and competing visions of the agri-food system, I analyse the implications of these negotiations for the Colombian rural development and agricultural policy.
