Sociologist, MA in Rural Development and PhD candidate in Sociology of Development.

My research focuses on the indigenous mobilization against extractive industries and renewable energy development in southern Chile. I am particularly interested in the energy transition, the boom of small hydropower plants in indigenous territories and the creative resistance movements that challenge neoliberal multicultural reforms. I draw on a variety of approaches, such as Actor-oriented, Science and Technology Studies, New Materialism, and Assemblage Thinking, to explore the human-nonhuman relationships and new forms of cosmopolitan energy policies.
