I am a researcher based at the Oxford Department of International Development working on food agricultural systems. In my research 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.
I work at the interface of agriculture, food and rural development. My forthcoming book (Routledge, 2021) focuses on the emerging narratives of food and agriculture in Colombia based on the study of the agrarian strikes and negotiations 2013-2016.
I provide support to the Multidimensional Poverty Peer Network, a group of policymakers from governments and international organisations around the world that developed or are in the process of developing Multidimensional Poverty measures in their countries. The network was launched in 2013 in Oxford. In addition to annual meetings, the MPPN also hosts high-level side events at the United Nations General Assembly every September and Statistical Comission every March.
The first chapter of the peace accord between the Colombian Governmentand FARC is the Comprehensive Rural Reform. I provide support to the Kroc Institute of Peace Studies in monitoring the implementation of the Rural Reform.
I have presented at international conferences. Want to invite me to give a talk? get in touch!
