Associate Professor

European Doctorate (2009) with a special award from Salamanca University following a predoctoral stay at Manchester University (UK).

Author of 25 articles published in both national and international journals with a quality index, with five of them in JCR (SSCI) -of which three are in the first quartile (Q1)-, and another five in SCImago JCR (Q2 and Q3). A further five articles have been published in leading non-indexed magazines of a more general nature. She is the author of 40 collaborative studies in collective works (with highlights at international level being the publishers Springer, Cambridge Scholars, and Bloomsbury, while domestically she has contributed to Síntesis and Octaedro). She has made over 60 presentations at conferences both at home and abroad of significance to the scientific-pedagogical field. She has attended nine of them as guest speaker, and in five she has sat on the Scientific/Organising Committee reviewing and assessing the submissions.

She has taken part in seven research projects in competitive calls at both national and regional level (R&D&i), and in two European key action projects (KA3 and KA104), as a member of the Recognised Research Group (GIR) “Procesos, espacios y prácticas educativas” [Processes, spaces and educational practices] (since 2007), besides actively taking part in other research institutes, networks and groups.

She has undertaken three predoctoral stays (two of them abroad – Manchester University and Coimbra University-, three months) and two international postdoctoral sojourns, with particular emphasis on the one involving the Oxford Internet Institute (two months), on a fellowship awarded through a competitive tender called by the British Academy.

She has collaborated as an external reviewer and as a member of the editorial team with seven international journals, almost all of which have a high quality index.

Currently (since 2014), she holds the position of Secretary of the Department of Theory and History of Education at Salamanca University.
