My academic background includes a PhD in sociology of law from Lund University and the University of Milan. My thesis was awarded the prize for Best Dissertation in Sweden in the field of working environment by Forum for Working Life Research in 2016. I have published research on inclusive urbanization and local democracy, the everyday life of street vendors and rickshaw drivers, the local politics of air pollution, and everyday forms of resistance to urban politics, recently with a focus on climate change adaptation. I am from Colombia where I studied Law at the National University.
