I research conversion to Pentecostalism in a context of violence and displacement, in rural Colombia. I am particularly interested in how conversion relates to Pentecostal theologies and practices of peace. I aim to bring to light the often complex and sometimes ambiguous nature of Pentecostal efforts for peace and conflict transformation. This is in continuation of my research master's in cultural anthropology at Utrecht University where I focussed on how Pentecostal imaginaries and practices of peace emerged out of a (historical) Pentecostal revival and a history of violence.
