Hello, I am Felipe
I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Politics of the University of Manchester, working as part of the MOBILISE project. I am also finishing my PhD at the Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy and International Relations of the Central European University. My academic interests lie in the fields of social movements and protests, as well as multi-methods methodology for the social sciences.
My research tackles questions central to social and political change. At MOBILISE, I research why, when there is discontent, some people protest while others migrate. In my PhD, I am interested in how activists care for each other and how organizations empower oppressed collectives.
I am currently working on two side project. Together with Prof. Dorit Geva, we are exploring the strategies and impact of ultra-conservative and anti-gender movements on EU politics. Moreover, Prof. Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick and I are studying how activists select their targets and which factors play a role in these decisions.
