My professional experience includes different institutions and countries. I began as a Seminar coordinator and Teaching Assistant in the Autonomous University of Barcelona while completing my doctoral thesis. After that I was awarded a fellowship to teach Spanish in Eastern Europe. In the UK I have worded as a Teaching Fellow in Spanish at the Spanish at the University of Birmingham and I have also been a language tutor at the Instituto Cervantes and at the University of Leeds.
I was awarded my PhD in Spanish Literature by the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 2013. Previously I completed a Master's Degree on Comparative Literature and had graduated in Hispanic Studies by the Autonomous University of Barcelona. I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Literature and Language (equivalent to a PGCHE) and a further Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I am involved in the design and implementation of language teaching in years 2 and 3. This includes an evidence-based approach to language learning.
Most of my research focus on the role of peer-assesment and Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL). Since 2018 I have successfully implement teaching innovation projects related to this areas in the modules I am involved with.
Previous to my scholarship career, my doctoral thesis focused on Spanish fin-de-siècle literature and its links to sickness, identity, gender and subjectivity. I have also investigated female travel writing between the Spain and the US and literary and cultural representations of sickness and science.
I am currently teaching Spanish language modules in year 2 and year 3.
