I am an assistant professor at the Freudenthal Institute, Utrecht University. My research focuses on the history and philosophy of the life sciences and physical anthropology. In recent years, I worked especially on racialization practices in the history of science as well as in contemporary biomedical research (e.g., in microbiome research and epigenetics) and in biometric technologies (e.g., facial recognition). I also investigate the politics of transdisciplinary knowledge production and the history of ethnobiology in Latin America.
I teach widely in history and philosophy of science and give courses on scientific integrity and values in science. Before coming to Utrecht, I worked at Wageningen University, NL, Ruhr University Bochum, GER, and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Ph.D. 2016).
