Lecturer at the Department of English and German Philology of the University of Zaragoza. In 2003, I obtained a competitive scholarship and worked as a research fellow, presenting my M.A. dissertation in English Studies that same year. In 2009, I completed my PhD thesis on cinematographic representations of national identity and ethnic relationships in contemporary British cinema. Currently, my research centres on film genre and cultural studies, more concretely on filmic representations of cultural identities, especially international relationships in terms of gender and ethnicity, in the context of globalization and the current economic crisis in contemporary transnational Anglophone cinema.
