Ana Sofia Alvarado

Ana Sofia Alvarado is from Mexico and she moved to Scotland in January 2019 to start her PhD in Health in Social Science with SCPHRPs Ruth Jepson and Larry Doi as her supervisors. Her main interests, and topic of her PhD, are food and nutrition security, human right to adequate food, and food citizenship. She has a BSc in Dietetics (in Mexico), and a MSc in Global Health and Management by the University of Aberdeen (2015-2016). Her current PhD is funded by the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT) in Mexico, which is an entity in charge of the promotion of scientific and technological activities.

Sofia has previously worked in the clinical practice, lecturing, and in the last two years in the development of an Observatory of the Right to Food in the city where she used to live. She also has experience with quantitative research approaches, but she is interested in learning about qualitative and participatory approaches.
