Biography

I’m co-founder of Kaleidos-Center for Interdisciplinary Ethnography (University of Cuenca & FLACSO-Ecuador). My current ethnographic focus is on two interdisciplinary research projects. One of them documents data distrust networks from the neighborhood scale to the national level in Ecuador. My second project examines the relationship between aging, caring and dietary practices among elderly adults in southern Ecuador. I have also conducted work with Ecuadorian migrants in Barcelona, ​​exploring how class relations intersect with debt, migration, labor, gender and generational relationships.
