Dr. Guénola Capron obtained her PhD in geography and planning from the University of Toulouse-2 le Mirail in 1996. She worked at the CNRS in France, then at the Center for Mexican and Central American Studies (CEMCA) in Mexico City and since 2010 she is a teacher and researcher in the department of sociology at the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM) of Azcapotzalco. Her research work focuses on the transformation of urban public space in the context of the rising problem of insecurity in Latin America, but also studies other objects such as daily mobility and, recently, food systems. Since 2016 she has been part of the Hungry Cities Partnership and has been responsible for monitoring the project by the Mexican side. Between 2018 and 2021 she has been invited by the University of Toulouse Jean-Jaurès in France.
