Ph.D. Candidate, Sociology, University of Oregon
After studying Political Science at University of Buenos Aires I worked for Argentina's federal government for three years doing public policy evaluation.
My approach to sociological research is deeply informed by feminist scholars’ call for engaged sociology, aiming to produce knowledge that can inform public policy, building from and with the subjects of study. I'm interested in the sociology of labor, migration, emotions, and gender, especially looking into the working conditions and collective organizing of precarious workers with an intersectional frame. I’m currently working on my dissertation which focuses on immigrant and refugee women employed in food processing in the Pacific Northwest and their experiences as essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope to continue working to advance workers’ rights and social justice, putting the knowledge and tools I have acquired directly at the service of workers, particularly immigrant workers and BIPOC.
