Daniela Paredes Grijalva received her BA from the Universidad San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador and her MA in Cultural and Social Anthropology from the University of Vienna, where she is currently enrolled as a doctoral student. She is a DOC-ÖAW Fellow and a researcher at the Institute for Social Anthropology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, an associate member of the Research Platform Mobile Cultures and Societies at the University of Vienna, and a student member at the Global De-Centre. She has worked on transnational migration, gender, and social protection in both research and practitioner contexts. Her experience in education and engagement with migrant communities intersect in a decolonial and anti-racist praxis in cultural, artistic, and academic spheres.

Her interests also include disasters, environmental change, more-than-human relations, colonial legacies, and human rights. She currently researches links between the environment and (im)mobilities in Indonesia.
