Description of Activity

I was successful in gaining a prestigious place as a fellow at the Madrid Institute for Advanced Study, from April - July 2019.

The Madrid Institute for Advanced Study (MIAS) is a new research centre that has been created jointly by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Casa de Velázquez, as part of the development of the Universidad Autónoma UAM-CEI International Campus of Excellence.
The MIAS invites researchers of all nationalities. The MIAS regulations therefore require an open invitation for applications. Following acceptance through a strict selection process, residents are allowed full autonomy to pursue their research projects; albeit they are encouraged to interact with one another and with the scientific community locally, regionally and nationally.

The MIAS’s scientific community as such consists of 20 researchers in Human and Social Sciences, whose stay in Madrid varies from 3 to 10 months, as well as longer-term resident researchers. There is a monitoring committee to provide scientific follow-up for all MIAS residents and facilitate cross-disciplinary exchanges among all the residents by means of periodic meetings, in direct contact with the scientific communities at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and at Casa de Velázquez.
