Assistant Professor at the Department of English and German of the University of Zaragoza (Spain). My research interests are transnational cinema, science fiction, borders, cosmopolitanism, globalization, spectacle, and climate change. I am a member of the research project “Between Utopia and Armageddon: The Spaces of the Cosmopolitan in Contemporary Cinema” (twitter: @SpacesCinema) and I coordinate, along with Reuben Martens, the Speculative Fiction workgroup at NECS (European Network for Cinema and Media Studies): https://necs.org/members/workgroup/6232
I hold an MA in Textual and Cultural Studies and a PhD in English and Film from the University of Zaragoza. Previously, I graduated in English Studies from the University of Alcalá (Madrid), 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, Skidmore College (New York), and the University of California, Riverside.
