Génesis is a Ph.D. student in Sociology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Yale University. Her work focuses on understanding how social movements, technology, and expertise influence people’s experiences with healthcare. She received an M.A. in Anthropology and Sociology from the Geneva Graduate Institute and a B.A. in Clinical Psychology from Universidad Central de Venezuela. She has also consulted for civil society organizations and research institutes specialized in sexual and reproductive health issues like comprehensive sexuality education, abortion care, and digital health.

Her academic and professional practice nurtures from her work as an advocate with a decade of experience in grassroots feminist action. Her last research project “Becoming abortion experts: making and transforming the professional boundaries of abortion care in Mexico” explores how the use of abortion medication reshapes the organization of work in Obstetrics & Gynecology and questions medicalized understandings of expertise.
