STS, sociology of markets, international politics, development aid

Vera is a research fellow on the MISTS project.

She is currently completing her PhD at the Centre de Sociologie de l’Innovation, Ecole des Mines, Paris, under the supervision of Fabian Muniesa. Her research interests revolve around Science and Technology Studies, the sociology of markets and the anthropology of development. She tries to combine these three analytical resources in order to make sense of globalized political action. Vera’s past work focused on how tropical deforestation has been framed as a problem for climate change mitigation, a problem that is expected to be dealt with by internationally negotiated regulations relying on economic incentives. As contributor to the MISTS project she will now examine market-based public-private arrangements targeting diseases that affect so-called developing countries.
