I have a BA in Anthropology from Universidad de Caldas (Colombia) and an MSc in Science and Technology Studies from the University of Edinburgh, under a Colfuturo Scholarship. Currently, I am a PhD candidate in Anthropology at the University of Exeter with a scholarship from the Ministry of Science and Technology from Colombia.   

My research looks at Congenital Syphilis prevention in Western Colombia.  After my experience as Research Assistant at CIDEIM (Research Centre dedicated to Infectious Diseases), I have realised it is essential to look at Congenital Syphilis prevention considering different knowledges, experiences and expertise. My supervisors are Professor Mike Michael and Dr Hannah Farrimond.

I have worked as Lecturer in several universities in Colombia and Chile in research methods (quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods); Anthropology theory, and Science and Technology Studies. I also have experience working with NGOs dedicated to education and health prevention, where I gained experience in designing, implementing, and evaluating social projects.

My research interests revolve around disease prevention, STS, public understanding of Science and Technology, community participation, applied research, and Anthropology and Sociology of Health.
