PhD Research Fellow in English and Film at the University of Zaragoza (Spain). In my dissertation, I study how a variety of recent science fiction films (2000-present) use the extrapolative power of the genre to look at transnational social phenomena from a cosmopolitan perspective. The key elements that I analyze are borders, the global economy, migration, neocolonialism, love, climate change, and connectivity.
In 2012, I graduated in English Studies from the University of Alcalá (Spain), receiving the 2011-12 National Undergraduate Award in Arts and Humanities from the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. I have also been a student or a visiting scholar at the University of Vienna (Austria), Skidmore College (NY, USA), and the University of California, Riverside (USA). My work has been funded by the University of Alcalá, La Caixa Foundation, and the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture, and Sport.
