Summary

I first came to the University of Hull as an undergraduate Erasmus exchange student, an experience which I found immensely rewarding, and I now find myself as the department’s contact for exchange programmes. I would advise anyone to take advantage of such schemes. After I graduated at my home university in Spain, I then came back to Hull as a postgraduate student and completed an MA in Philosophy of Mind and a PhD supervised by Professor Kathleen Lennon. I have also taught philosophy at the Universities of Keele and Leeds.

Research interests

My main areas of research are Gender Theory, Intersectionality, Feminism and the Philosophy of Education.

Postgraduate supervision

I am happy to consider supervision in a range of philosophical topics, as well as those with an interdisciplinary theme, and not just those directly related to my own research interests.
