Teaching Fellow


I joined GSD in January 2022, after five years at Warwick. I have had an international portfolio career, working mostly in Higher Education in the UK, Chile and Mexico. I am an organisational psychologist and I hold a MSc in Occupational Health Psychology and a Masters in Enterprise Administration.

I am interested in research and praxis to enhance the quality of work and education. We spend a great part of our lives working and studying, development must ensure the people who are part of it thrive. I have conducted research on the effects of working conditions on mental health and was part of a European project looking and psychosocial risk factors at worked which informed current regulations. My current focus is on technology-enhanced learning and what we have learned during the pandemic.
