Short presentation

I studied my BA in Anthropology at Universidad Mayor de San Andrés in Bolivia and I am currently a teacher and researcher at the Anthropology and Archaeology Research Institute at this university. I have a Master degree in Visual Anthropology from the Latin American Faculty of Social Science (FLACSO) in Ecuador. I also have a background in the visual arts. I was the curator of the Bolivian Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennial, and curator and chief of the National Museum of Art of Bolivia.

My dissertation research aims to understand how indigenous communities in Bolivia cope with migration and climate change. The Bolivian Highlands, the so called altiplano, is among the areas that has been most affected by climate change in this country, pushing people to migrate due to water scarcity, drought, land erosion, biodiversity loss and increased fragility of ecosystems. The project investigates the identity dynamics of the indigenous population in their communities of origin and in their migrant destinations. I will apply ethnographic and visual methodologies in my fieldwork.
