Welcome. I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU).

I received my Ph.D. from Rutgers University in Political Science in 2021. I have an M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Chicago (2006), and a certificate in Women and Gender Studies from Rutgers University (2018).

My primary research interests include gender politics, social movements, religious political movements, LGBTQ+ politics, human rights, peace negotiations and agreements, Latin America, gender mainstreaming, populism, and feminist and qualitative methodology.

My book manuscript, which is based on my award winning dissertation, argues that to better understand the gendering of peace negotiations and agreements at large, we must not only look at how many and which women are at the table, but also at the gendered and spatial logics of peace negotiations to understand the gendered outcomes in peace agreements. Using the 2010-2016 Colombian peace process as a case study, I draw on an original framework that traces the efforts, locations, and gendered logics of both women’s and LGBTIQ+ groups, as well as those of the negotiation table, to unearth the ways in which women’s and LGBTIQ+ groups’ agendas were accepted, co-opted, and/or resisted within the negotiations and final agreement.

Bienvenidos. Soy becaria postdoctoral en el Departamento de Política y Administración Pública de la Universidad Metropolitana de Toronto. Recibí mi doctorado de la Universidad de Rutgers en Ciencias Políticas en 2021. Tengo una maestría en Ciencias Políticas de la Universidad de Rutgers (2018), una maestría en Estudios Latinoamericanos de la Universidad de Chicago (2006) y un certificado en los Estudios de Mujeres y Género de la Universidad de Rutgers (2018). Mis principales intereses de investigación incluyen políticas de género, movimientos sociales, movimientos religiosos, política LGBTQ +, derechos humanos, contramovimientos, negociaciones y acuerdos de paz, América Latina, transversalización de género, justicia transicional, populismo y metodología feminista y cualitativa. Mi proyecto de libro actual investiga cómo y bajo qué condiciones se incorporan los derechos sexuales y de género en los procesos de paz y conflicto. A través de un marco feminista interseccional, analizo la creación, el papel y los efectos de dos movilizaciones en competencia que se organizaron a favor y en contra del enfoque de género sin precedents en el acuerdo de paz colombiano de 2016.
