I have a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, (UPV/EHU), and several postgraduate studies, MA in Literature and Philosophy, University of Sussex and a Master in Feminists and Gender Studies (UPV/EHU), Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea. I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in the department of Contemporary History (UPV/EHU) under the supervision Nerea Aresti Esteban.

My research focuses on the analysis of the construction of the sexual difference and gender identities during the crisis of the Antiguo Régimen in the Basque Country. I am especially interested in the analysis of the changes on the conception of the body and the ways in which those changes affected the construction of gender. Besides, I try study the complex relations and interactions between the categories of gender, class, nation and religion in the construction of identities.

I have published several works:
