I am a researcher working on the politics of food and agriculture. In my research I analyse the debates around food provisioning from the perspective of agrarian movements, the state, consumers and the food industry. I am convinced that a shift towards sustainable and socially just food systems, can contribute greatly to the eradication of poverty, the improvement of food security and nutrition, and a more sustainable world.
I have a PhD in International Development from the University of Oxford, a Master in Public Administration from Seattle University and an undergraduate degree in ecology from Universidad Javeriana.
I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Government of Universidad de Los Andes, and Associate Researcher at the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative, University of Oxford.
