BA in Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country, (UPV/EHU). After gaining the Inter-University Masters in Contemporary History, she began work on her doctoral thesis, through the Program I+D+i Zabalduz 2012, working with both the UPV/EHU and the The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum.
Interested in Gender History and the History of Art, her main line of investigation focuses on the process of construction of identities and the capacity of art to produce and reproduce those models. Her approach considers that art —further than its aesthetic function— has also a sociopolitical agency contributing to the formation of class, gender and national identities. From this perspective she currently researches the process of creation and development of modern political cultures in the Basque Country, putting them in relation with the artistic production of the period.
In 2014, interested in contemporary research in the history of emotions, she undertook a three month stay at Bangor University (Gwynedd, Wales) under the supervision of Helena Miguélez-Carballeira.
