My research will explore how modes of storytelling affect conceptions of justice, focusing on gender-based violence in Mexico within the distinct setting of ‘War on Drugs’. This research will be completed in collaboration with INTERSECTA, a feminist organisation committed to eradicating discrimination in Mexico. Supervisors are QUB Law’s Dr Yassin Brunger and Professor Louise Mallinder, alongside Professor Siobhan Wills from Ulster University.
I previously graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Media from Tec de Monterrey, one of the biggest universities in Mexico, and have a MA in Conflict Resolution and Social Justice from Queen’s University Belfast. Since 2019, I’ve been teaching different courses at the Department of Socio-political and Legal Studies at ITESO University. Alongside my academic career, I’ve also worked on the non-profit sector for five years in the volunteer and communications departments.
