Good day to all!

My name is Mayra Roffe. I'm studying a PhD in philosophy of science at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Initally, my research project focused on different chapters of the pathologization of indigenous bodies in Mexico througout the XX century and up to the present, from biotipology and eugencis to genomics and epigenetics.

Besides being a student, I'm also part of Mexico's foreign service. As such, I have very recently completed an asignment at the border between Mexico and the US that has left a profund impression and has pushed me to reorient my research towards the intersection between immigration policy and genomic/epigenetic technologies.

I'm just begining the process of restructuring my doctoral research and I'm very much looking forward to the summer school as a source of inspiration.

See you all very soon!

Mayra
