She directs the Research Group of Fundamentally Oriented Anthropology (GRAFO), a consolidated group recognized by the Catalan Government (2017-SGR-1325; Her research addresses two main areas: migration and transnationalism, and poverty and livelihood strategies. In both areas, she analyzes in particular the role that formal and informal social relationships and settings have in the production, mitigation or exacerbation of exclusion. For this aim, she applies personal network analysis that allows her to obtain a detailed, micro-level understanding of processes of integration, cohesion and exclusion. See for more information:
