I have been a lecturer in Educational Psychology at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC Barcelona) since September 2016, where I am also the coordinator of the Postgraduate Degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Previously, I worked as a postdoc at Oxford Brookes University (2015-2016) and the University of Helsinki (2014-2015) after defending my PhD at the Ramon Llull University in 2014. Prior to this, I was a guest lecturer at the Aalto University School of Business in Finland (2013) and a pre-doctoral fellow at the University of Helsinki (2012). I have also worked as an adjunct lecturer at the Ramon Llull University (2010-2011), the University of Girona (2011-2012), the University of Barcelona (2012) and the International University of La Rioja (2016). Outside university, I have been a teacher trainer in Navarra, Galicia and Catalonia (2008-2010) and worked as a primary and adult education teacher for the Government of Catalonia's Ministry of Education (2006-2014), as well as a specialist in informal education (1998-2016).
