Angela Serrano

Credentials: Columbia

2018 SKJ Fellow

Angela Serrano is a Ph.D. student in Sociology at UW-Madison. Her research draws on agrarian studies and political ecology to understand how consumption and finance shape the livelihood possibilities of farmers and farmworkers. She currently studies oil palm crops, looking at how the involvement of financial investors in these crops is changing crop management practices, employment opportunities, and access to water and other resources for farmers in Magdalena Medio, Colombia. Before coming to UW-Madison, Angela did a Master’s in Geography at King’s College London, where she explored how the increased consumption of avocado is changing livelihood opportunities for farmers in Santander, Colombia, her home region. In her free time, she enjoys yoga, cooking, and walking around in new places.
