Antulio's work relates to the political economy of resource extraction. His research interests centre on the changing modalities of state treatment of foreign investment in resource industries, considering the emergence of new actors and trends in the global economy. Focusing on the critical case of Venezuela, Antulio's post-doctoral project at SUM deals with the dramatic expansion of Venezuela's extractive frontier through large-scale mining south of the Orinoco river. This case allows conceptualizing the interplay of indigenous demands, foreign investors' interests and state policy in the midst of the downturn in commodity markets and a deep economic crisis.
