My research interests revolve around the fields of political ecology, identity, discourses and environmental distribution conflicts.

As part of the Rule & Rupture programme I am investigating natural resource management, land rights and citizenship in Colombia.

With point of departure in the city of Cali and the surrounding region Valle de Cauca, I am investigating how changes in production patterns and relations to land are influencing people’s sense of place and identity. Further, I will look into the patterns of migration and commuting and how urban and rural areas are linked through flows of people, goods and ideas.

Fields of interest
