Academic achievements, social engagement initiatives:
I am a sociologist graduated in the University of Valparaiso, Master and Ph. D candidate in Latin American Studies from the University of Chile. My lines of research are related to Latin American social and political thought, the sociology of culture and of intellectuals and feminist thought. Since 2010 to date I have been teaching at Chilean universities and since 2012 I coordinate the Ideas and Intellectuals in Latin America Task Force that meets at the Chilean Sociology Congress every two years. My academic work includes the publication of articles derived from my research as well as the editions of collective publications in academic journals dedicated to Latin American thought. I am currently studying a doctorate in Latin American Studies at the University of Chile and I am a Fellow of the National Commission of Science and Technology (Conicyt) of the Government of Chile. In addition, I am socially engaged in Chile through my participation as a member of the Nodo XXI Foundation (, a non-profit organization whose aim is to contribute to the strengthening of social and political forces working for justice and the deepening of democracy in Chile through the promotion of dialogues, debates, the training of leaders and the development of studies and public policy proposals. Specifically, I develop my work in the Foundation in the project "Feminist Dialogues" and as editor of the magazine Cuadernos de Coyuntura.
