Cristian Montenegro

Es sociólogo, actualmente realizando el PhD in Social Research Methods en el Departamento de Metodología de la London School of Economics. Su proyecto doctoral se titula “Organizaciones de usuarios y el Sistema de Salud Mental en Chile: Observando la construcción de una frontera emergente”, una exploración etnográfica a formas incipientes de acción colectiva entre usuarios de servicios de salud mental en Chile.

Su principal interés de investigación es el análisis sociológico del campo de la salud mental, en particular el encuentro entre discursos globales, diseños institucionales locales y experiencias cotidianas. Esto a través de dos inclinaciones analítico-metodológicas: 1) historia oral para reconstruir políticas, planes y programas desde diferentes voces y registros y 2) aproximaciones etnográficas para acercarse a la experiencia de quienes reciben estas políticas, planes y programas.

Cristián se formó como sociólogo en la Universidad Academia de Humanismo Cristiano, para luego obtener un MSc in Health, Community and Development en el Institute of Social Psychology de LSE. Ha dictado cursos sobre metodología cualitativa para la Escuela de Verano de LSE, sobre diseño y evaluación de intervenciones para la mención en Psicología Comunitaria en la Escuela de Psicología de la Pontificia Universidad Católica, y sobre Comunicación Social en Salud para la Maestría en Salud Pública dictada por la Escuela de Salud Pública de la Universidad de Chile.
