About me

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

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

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

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 gender, transitional justice, human and labour rights, peacebuilding and the construction of public policy in Colombia and other Latin American and European countries.
