About the work

University professor, researcher and feminist activist, with a Master’s degree in Gender Studies from the Central European University (CEU). She is an Atlantic Senior Fellow for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) on the Institute of Inequalities of the London School of Economics (LSE). She is the co-founder of the Platform Observatory. She is part of the Advisory Board of the Fairwork Project. Her research topics are: care labor, decolonial studies, and platform economies/digital labor.


With the Platforms Observatory we generate advocacy content for workers’ organizations; conducted surveys on socioeconomic conditions in Ecuador; produced quanti-qualitative information on work in delivery and driving apps. We have advised law proposals for the regularization of work in apps. With the project Código Doméstico in the flesh, I have generated an oral archive of workers’ experiences in care work apps. Using oral history, visual narratives and podcast from feminist methodologies.
