Gerardo Enrique García Sepúlveda studied Economics at the University of Guadalajara (México) and received his PhD in Social Sciences at the Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropología Social (CIESAS). During his doctoral studies he was hosted by GRECO at Universitat de Barcelona under the mentorship of Prof. Susana Narotzky.

His work reveals disputes around monetary flows as well as the real and perceived inequalities that they involve.
