I took my degree in English and Spanish at the University of Valladolid (Spain, 1992), where I started teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. Two years later I completed the PGCE (Certificado de Aptitud Pedagógica) through the same institution and in 1997 I started a PhD on Contemporary Female-Authored Spanish Drama, which I successfully completed in 2001. I was an Associate Lecturer for the Open University from 2003 to 2015, and since September 2002 I have been teaching in the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at the University of Manchester, where I also coordinate the Spanish language. I teach Spanish grammar and integrated skills, business Spanish and translation. In the past I was course co-convenor for ‘The Rise of Theatre’ (SPAN3410) and participated in the delivery of lectures and tutorials on modern and contemporary Spanish theatre for various courses.
