Profile

I joined the PhD program at Leeds University Business School in October 2023, funded by the Work and Employment Relationships Department. 

My doctoral research is around the childcare crisis in the United Kingdom after the global pandemic. In a moment of multicrisis (global care crisis, cost of living crisis, and childcare crisis) the research aims to explore and understand the current conditions – created by the macroeconomics and the political decisions of the government- that lead people to become Au Pairs and parents to hire Au Pairs in the UK. The investigation intersects gender, migration and class to properly understand all the inequalities and vulnerabilities that face the subjects of this research. 

Preceding this PhD I studied the GEMMA Master’s degree in Gender Studies at the Universities of York (UK) and Granada (UK). Before studying for the GEMMA Master’s Degree, I took part in the municipalist movement of Spain. Through the political group “Aranzadi Pamplona en Común – Iruña Denon Artean”, I became the City Councillor of Equality of LGBT policies of the City Council of Pamplona (Spain) in 2015. Nowadays, I collaborate with the organisation AKAFEM.
