About me:
Before joining the WU Institute for Gender and Diversity in Organizations Andrea Romo Pérez was a postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Social Work and Social Welfare of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She was also a university lecturer in the Master Intercultural Conflict Management at the Alice Salomon Hochschule (Berlin). She holds a PhD in History from Freie Universität Berlin, and a master’s degree in Public Management from Potsdam Universität. Dr. Romo has conducted research on policing and police-minority relations in Latin America and Israel, specifically on police deviance, sexual misconduct in provisional detention centers, masculinities and gender-dynamics in this male-dominated organization/profession. In addition, she has worked in the areas of intersectional discrimination, and gender-based violence. More recently her work also focuses on women and STEM leadership, particularly in the aerospace sector. Her work has been published in international high impact journals such as: Police Practice and Research, Feminist Criminology and Policing and Society. Outside her academic life, she worked in the print media and Ecuador’s public sector.
