Andrea Espinoza Carvajal is a PhD student in the Department of International Development. Her research focuses on violence, gender, and legal pluralism in the Ecuadorian Andes.

During her fieldwork, she lived with a Puruhá indigenous community in Llin Llin Pucará (Chimborazo, Ecuador), which allowed her to take pictures and recordings of the community's daily activities.

Part of her work was presented last year in the photographic exhibition titled, Hybridity and Identity: Images from the Ecuadorian Andes. Andrea is interested in exploring the use of visual methodologies to analyse and communicate academic research. She has a background in journalism.
