I am a Research Associate on a project "Latin American Antiracism in a ‘Post-Racial’ Age", funded by the ESRC and directed by Prof. Peter Wade (University of Manchester) and Dr Monica Moreno-Figueroa (University of Cambridge). My main academic interests lie at the intersection of race, ethnicity, social mobilization, and state multiculturalism. My doctoral dissertation “The Left-turn of Multiculturalism: Indigenous and Afrodescendant Movements in Northwestern Venezuela” analysed the effects of multiculturalism on the relationship of ethno-racial social movements and the Venezuelan state.
