I completed a B.A. in Communication Sciences, specialization in Journalism, at Universidad Complutense of Madrid. I also hold a Master of International Affairs, concentration in Media & Communication Management, from Columbia University of New York City. I was awarded a Ph.D. in Humanities, Department of Philosophy, Language and Literature by Universidad Carlos III of Madrid.
I combine the teaching activity at this University with a professional responsibility as Head of Training, Educational Innovation and Publications at CiudadEscuela Muchachos (CEMU), a non-for-profit organization that, since 1970, is dedicated to protecting, fostering and educating children and adolescents.
From this position, I coordinate European cooperation projects for the Exchange of good social and educational practices working with children in situations of disadvantage and/or at risk of social exclusion. This line of research and international collaboration includes projects that aim to design new strategies and provide tools for intercultural education and the narrative construction of adolescent’s identity in multicultural environments.
