Research

I investigate migration, social categorization, membership regimes, and identification in colonial Latin America. In my research, I have also dealt with the formation of an association between foreigners and Protestant heresy in colonial Mexico as well as simulation strategies and ways of resistance. I have predominantly worked on tracing how the foreigner category was shaped during the 16th and 17th centuries.

I hold a Ph.D. in History from Pablo de Olavide University in Seville, Spain, 2016 (financed by CSIC, the Spanish National Research Council). My dissertation was about Dutch and German labor and merchant migration in colonial Mexico.

Currently, I have a project about economic warfare, where I research economic reprisals against European foreigners in the Spanish colonies during the 17th century (financed by VR, the Swedish Research Council). I have also been granted a new VR project on the effects of State action on social categorization processes in colonial Latin America.
