BA in International Relations from the National Autonomous University of Mexico
MA in Gender Studies from El Colegio de México

Carla’s broad research interests lie in the study of labeling and stigmatization processes among collectivities and the interaction of these processes with the self.

Her Master’s dissertation focused on the meaning-making of the carceral experiences of women formerly incarcerated in Mexico City, and the ways in which these experiences shaped their understandings of themselves, navigating stigmatization and gender.
