I have recently advanced to Candidacy and I am fully devoted to my dissertation work about knowledge production around lithium industry in Argentina. For the 23-24 academic year, I am based in Salta (Argentina) to conduct fieldwork and interviews for my investigation. 

For the first years of my Ph.D. program, I have focused on a project that builds on the case of the Los Angeles River and aims to elucidate the ways in which public life and knowledge coalesce in times of ecological crisis.
