is employed in this project as researcher and coordinator since May 2021. Her research focuses on the entanglements of time, place, and everyday life of refugees in transit. She has conducted ethnographic research in the United States, Mexico, and Central America.
“Since 2013, I began to travel the routes in southeastern Mexico used by Central American migrants to cross the country in their attempts to reach the United States. In the subsequent years, I have explored how migrant persons experience and imagine their transient journeys, and more recently, how they adventure in emplacement practices throughout the country. This project enables a reach interdisciplinary exchange to address these phenomena from diverse theoretical and empirical perspectives. Moreover, the project serves as a platform to better understand the geopolitics of the region from an empirical perspective, due to the possibility of bringing together the various projects of the project team.”
