Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am currently working as a university lecturer in the discipline of social work and involved as a researcher in the following research projects: MigraFam - Ordering the migrant family: Power asymmetries and citizenisation in restructuring welfare bureaucracies (2017–2022); SOSKIELI - Language diversity and vulnerability in social work in the era of digitalisation (2021–2023); Interpreting in Social Services - Professional expertise in the multilingual landscape of welfare service work (2021–2022). I have previously conducted research on Latin American women’s transnational migration in Spain from the perspectives of transnational family relations, intersectionality, (in)visibility, belonging, and time.
