My research interests include rights-based approaches to urban development, indigenous politics, social movements, urban theory, and models of plurinational citizenship. Theoretically, my research is highly interdisciplinary, drawing from geography approaches on comparative urbanism and the right to the city, development theories on asset accumulation, and political science and sociological approaches on citizenship, identity formation, social actors, and collective action. My recent work has critically examined the role of indigeneity in urban policies and planning in a context of constitutional changes that have taken place in the Latin American countries of Bolivia and Ecuador. In particular I am interested in exploring conflicts around indigenous territorial rights and human rights for shelter and property in peri-urban areas in Bolivia’s and Ecuador’s capital cities La Paz and Quito. I have also conducted collaborative research on how Ecuador adapts the Sustainable Development Goals in its national policy agenda.
