Research Interests

In my Ph.D. thesis I aim to work with the following research areas: European and political identity, transnational studies and migration. My main supervisors are Dr. Luis Ramiro and Dr. Richard Whitaker.

Since 2009, I have collaborated at the “Democracy and Autonomies: Society and Politics (DASP)” research group directed by Dr. Xavier Coller (Yale University and University Pablo de Olavide). During that period I have been involved in the projects: “Andalusian Identity among Political Elites and Citizenship”, and “Autonomic Political Elites in Spain.”
