In my dissertation (2016), I studied Latin American women’s transnational migration in Spain from the perspectives of transnational family relations, intersectionality, (in)visibility, belonging, and time. In have taught qualitative research methods and research ethics at Bachelor's and Master's levels. During the academic year 2022–23, I teach the following courses: Knowledge and conceptions of knowledge in social work; Master's seminar.
