I am a Mexican social scientist currently working on my PhD. In my thesis I use an ethnographic perspective to explore the intersection of poverty, chronic kidney disease, access to biomedical technologies and self-care practices in Western Mexico. I am interested in how social structures shape illness experiences and health care seeking strategies in poor resource settings in Mexico. Download my publications for free at
