Sofía is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in LSE Anthropology (2023-2026). She specializes in care, racism, migration and the life course in Chile and Latin America. Her research seeks to understand how experiences of difference bring to the fore novel ways of understanding the processes and relations that constitute states and markets, and how economic and political imaginaries are constructed in and through intimate subjectivities and encounters. Sofía’s PhD work with migrant Haitian women in Santiago (Chile) has been published in American Anthropologist, Focaal, and Signs. She is finishing a book manuscript based on her dissertation, entitled States of Care: Affective Labor and Racism in Migrant Chile.
