I hold a MA in Social Sciences with a Anthropology Concentration from the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. I received the FNS scholarship in July 2016 to follow the Specialization in Field Research at the Ethnology Institute of Neuchâtel. During the summer 2017, I joined the OAS Civil Society Staff of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in Washington D.C. From 2016 to 2017, I developed field work on Paramilitarism and Peace Building Agency in the Caribbean Region of Colombia. During my studies in Switzerland I worked for Solidarité Sans Frontières in Bern (2015) and the Helvetic Association for Colombian Peace (2016). Previously I worked for the Colombian Ministry of Culture as Coordinator Laboratories of Research and Creation in Guanía (2012), and National University of Colombia as senior researcher at the Faculty of Arts where I conducted field research on the Bogotà culture Policy for the Specialization thesis (2011).
