Within the SoNAR-Global project I work on research and collaboration to foster the active participation of the social sciences in the prevention and response to infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance, with a particular focus on Covid-19.
I participated in research projects in a diverse range of topics and countries. I was involved in a project on drug use and the impact of drug policy, law enforcement and harm reduction in Argentina, and I assisted in research conducted by the Correlation - European Harm Reduction Network and the University of Lancaster about the experiences of users and managers of drug consumption facilities in the Netherlands and across Europe. Within the Bridging the Gaps program I carried out research into the stigmatization and access to care of people living with HIV/AIDS in the LGBTIQ+ community in Ecuador.
In pursuit of my PhD at the EHESS and Cermes3 in France, I conducted research on genetic medicine and genomic research with an emphasis on diabetes in Mexico. I was especially interested in the ways in which genetic technologies were put to work in explanations of diabetes prevalence in the Mexican population. I paid particular attention to public health policies, epidemiological transition, health care reforms, and changing ways of living and eating.
