I am a doctoral student in the Department of Hispanic studies of the School of Languages as well as the Department of Sociological Studies. I started my PhD in 2014 under the supervision of Dr Peter Watt and Dr Bridgette Wessels. The research project is part of “Transforming Research Methods in the Humanities” which is funded by University of Sheffield 2022 Futures. My research project is focused on the role of social media in the process of recent social movements making human rights claims in contemporary Mexico. It is an interdisciplinary project, which addresses political and social change in Mexico along with the facilitating and constraining uses of digital technology. I started my PhD after 18 years working in the Americas research program of the International Secretariat of Amnesty International. I was responsible for field research into a wide range of human rights violations in Mexico between 2002 and 2014 and authored many of the organizations reports on the Mexican human rights situation. I gained a BA honours in Spanish and Latin American studies and Philosophy in 1995. I also taught English as foreign language in several countries and have travelled widely in Latin America.
