My research is with an audiovisual school for children in Colombia you can see there work on youtube here . I am presently researching the children´s/youth use of facebook and their particular interactions online as regards sexuality comparing this platform to the official blog where they produced work for a sexuality and citizenship state project. I hope to present this as a paper for the upcoming EASA conference.

Phd Student in socio-cultural anthropology at the University of Manitoba hoping to elope to the University of Manchester in September if funding comes through to continue or re.start this Phd in social anthropology and visual media. I also hold a Masters and Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting My wish is to do visual ethnographic work especially ethnographic documentaries as combination of these two fields. I have four children so the process will be slow.
