Francisco Miguel dos Santos Venes


I'm a Biomedical Engineer converted to critical social sciences. In the past years I resided in Quito (Equador) where I studied a MSc. in Development Economics and worked as a research assistant in different projects on social and environmental safeguards applied to mega-constructions; trade flows and OFDI by China on Andean countries; and public policies in the energy sector. My main research interests are within the fields of ecological economics and political ecology. I consider myself a scholar-activist and am part of an urban movement fighting large scale mining interests in Ecuador. Currently I follow FEUC/CES PhD. programme on Democracy.
