PhD Candidate, University of Sydney, University of Sydney

I have just completed 18 months fieldwork in Bogota, Colombia as part of my PhD in Anthropology-Sociology. The title of my ethnography is: 'The Law of the Most Alive', and it's based on interviews and immersion in both marginal, violent zones, and the world of elites in the Colombian capital, Bogota. The project maps the dynamics of exclusion, discrimination, power and privilege in contemporary Colombia.

This project follows an internship with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Geneva and an Honours Year at the University of Sydney's Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies.
