Natalia R Castañeda

PhD Candidate

I am an environmental and health anthropologist from Bogotá, Colombia, where I studied at Universidad de Los Andes my BSc in Anthropology with a minor in Biology, Geography, and Environmental Sciences. My passion for learning and researching has allowed me to work on different research groups in Latin America and abroad. My curiosity for traveling encouraged me to do an exchange at Philips Marburg Universität, Germany, an internship at Chiang Mai University, Thailand, and complete my MSc in the anthropology of health at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. With this interdisciplinary and international background, my aim as a Ph.D. student at NovelEco is to study urban novel ecosystems from a social, environmental, and global health perspective.
