About me

I am a Colombian lawyer and PhD in International Relations at the University of St Andrews. 

At present,I am a Transitional Justice Fellow at the Harvard Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and the director of the Research Group 'Marine Justice and International Law' at the Colombian organisation, the Observatory for Marine and Coastal Governance.

 My career has balanced academic scholarship with work as a researcher, litigant and developing advocacy in conflict-affected and post-conflict countries, in particular in Latin America.

For more than 15 years, I worked as a consultant for the International Labour Organisation and civil society organisations. In 2016, I was Deputy Director of the High Commissioner for Victims' Rights, Peace and Reconciliation of the Mayor's Office of Bogotá, Colombia, and for five years, Director of International Advocacy at the Colombian NGO, the Colombian Commission of Jurists.

Area of expertise

 My areas of interests and research are conflict resolution; gender, transitional justice, human and labour rights, peacebuilding and the construction of public policy in Colombia and other Latin American and European countries.
