I am researching the role of religion in the social construction of memory amid Violence. The case studied in my research is a massacre that occurred in Bojayá (Colombia) in 2002, as the result of the confrontation between paramilitary and guerrilla groups.

I am part of the Leverhulme Programme Compromise after Conflict as one its PhD students.
