Florencia Ferrari, Student & Academic Coordinator
Florencia studied social anthropology at Buenos Aires University (UBA, Argentina) and is currently finishing her Ph.D in anthropology after winning a doctoral scholarship in 2016. Her research, which focuses on public policies around unemployment and their impact on workers’ organizations, was conducted in the province of Jujuy, in northern Argentina, where she used to travel and live for a couple of months each year. As part of her academic training, she moved to Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) for a few months and attended the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). She also worked as a teacher and tutor in different public universities in Buenos Aires.
Growing up, Florencia considered herself to be a bit of a nerd – she loved reading literature and theater plays, listening to music and going to concerts, and watching films. Her hometown was a small city in the Buenos Aires province, so some films were difficult to obtain. Hence, she really looked forward to moving to Buenos Aires and enjoying all the cultural activities the city has to offer. In her free time, Florencia likes to take long strolls through different neighborhoods and explore Buenos Aires architecture and culinary circuits.
