PhD in Women’s and Gender Studies from Rutgers University (New Jersey, USA). After finishing my BA in Sociology in 2009, at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, I completed two MAs in Gender Studies at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Hull University. My current research explores the intersection of gender and politics, with an emphasis on the gender dimension of populism, as well as of institutional and party politics. I focus on the ongoing transformations and representation crises in Western political contexts as a result of the Great Recession and its political ramifications, conducting fieldwork on the role of new political parties, anti-austerity movements and emerging populist actors. Apart from my two MA theses, my research experience includes a project of the UN-INSTRAW and the fieldwork for my dissertation (in-depth interviews, focus groups and participant observation). I have recently published in the journal Men and Masculinities (SJR: Q1) and I have 5 years of teaching experience in in-person and online courses, at different undergraduate levels.
