I am a social and educational psychology PhD Researcher at Open University of Catalonia with a fellowship from the Government of Catalonia co-funded by the European Social Fund working with Gender and ICT research group. I was a visiting researcher at University of California, Santa Cruz working with Dr. Campbell Leaper. Before starting the doctoral studies I finished an Official Master Degree in Social Psychology at University of Granada and a Bachelor Degree in Primary Education at University of Extremadura. During the Bachelor Degree I did an internship in Universidad Autónoma de Baja California in México and another in University of Eastern Finland where I developed my Bachelor's thesis and I was a teacher assistant in different Finnish schools. In my PhD I analyse the pre-service teachers' opinions and attitudes of gender roles and stereotypes about males' and females' competences in STEM subjects using qualitative and quantitative methodologies. I also contribute teaching diversity, inclusion and equality in institutions & companies. My expertise is in gender, diversity, inclusion, STEM, education, intersectionality and equality.
