I'm a Chilean PhD student, I hold a bachelor's in psychology and a master’s degree in Social Psychology. My research focuses on the relationship between the rejection of immigrants and whiteness, state violence, processes of racialization, and frontiers in the north of Chile. Also, I have researched topics in gender and sexuality, and youth. In parallel, I became a historical memory activist belonging to the "agrupación Providencia", an organization that promoted the declaration of a former clandestine detention and torture center of the Chilean military dictatorship -still occupied by the police- as a site of memory, the organization nowadays is disputing the building with the Chilean police to convert it to an "alive" memory site.
