Research position

Ramón y Cajal fellow at the Basque Center for Climate Change (BC3). My research focuses on knowledge co-production in environmental conflicts in the Global North. I now work on a participatory research about the eutrophication of the Mar Menor lagoon (Murcia, Spain). I have analysed how the conflict is manifested in public controversies, uncertainty, socio-political polarization and associated collective emotions, and how all these processes hamper the possibilities for effective public action. In the upcoming years, I plan to go deeper with feminist STS thinkers to explore other cases of societal polarisation triggered by the implementation of ecological transition policies and how to create transformative spaces in such contexts.
