I am a PhD student at the University of Roehampton, funded by the AHRC/UKRI TECHNÉ studentship. My research focuses on the use and interpretation of taboo words in communication from a semantic and pragmatic perspective.
I am also a lecturer in Spanish at King's College London (MLC), where I teach several modules of Spanish as a foreign language at all levels.
Previously, I have worked as a lecturer in Translation in the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid and as a Spanish teacher in Vrije Universiteit Brussels and in University of Roehampton (London).
