16_05 Paz Profile_Final-5I am PhD candidate at LSE Sociology. In my doctoral research I am studying the relationship between cultural production and placemaking, investigating the curation of street food markets in London. My ethnographic work looks at the work of market organisers, food traders and other actors involved in the generation of a market/scene, marketplaces and the transformation of local spaces. I have previous research experience in digital communication practices and its connection with urban space, working in policy for the Chilean government and as an independent researcher.
