Ana is a specialist in communication and social change in Latin America with expertise in grassroots social movements and political communication, focusing on citizen appropriation of media, power asymmetries, and epistemologies of communication.

A prolific researcher and writer, she has been a communications lecturer in five countries and, prior to joining academia, worked with a range of non-profit organisations and corporate foundations that promote children’s rights, environmental awareness and positive social change.
