Academic Background
I hold an MA in Social Anthropology and an MSc in Social Research, both from the University of Edinburgh. 
My doctoral research in anthropology at Goldsmith’s College, London considered the experiences of street children in a reformatory institution in Colombia, and their trajectories to and from it.  My thesis examined issues of disciplinary practices, and children’s responses to these, as well as looking at questions of violence in relation to dominant models of masculinity, and wider ideas about structural violence.
