    Personal Statement

    I have a BA in Catalan Language and Literature (Filologia Catalana) from University of the Balearic Islands and a MA in Teaching Catalan as a Foreign Language from Autonomous University of Barcelona. My dissertation analyses the role of literature in Catalan textbooks for non-Catalan speakers. I have also studies a Postgraduate's Degree in Proofreading and Linguistics (Catalan) at Autonomous University of Barcelona. I have taught Catalan at the University of Belgrade, in Serbia, as an intern. In 2014/2015 I worked as a Catalan language teacher at the Bristol Language School, before I joined the University of Liverpool as a Lecturer in Catalan Studies.

    I teach in Catalan Language and Culture modules and also in the module Introduction to Iberian and Latin American Studies.

    Since 2019 I am Director of the Year Abroad in the department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
