I am an ESRC-funded PhD researcher at JOMEC. My research looks into how the sociopolitical situation of the Basque Country is currently portrayed in Spanish media in the context of the end of armed conflict.

Prior to my PhD, I completed a BA Modern Languages at Universidad de Deusto (Bilbao), where I presented an extended final year project in linguistics. In 2021 I obtained an MA Journalism, Media and Communications at Cardiff University.

My mother tongue is Spanish and I grew up in a traditional fishing village turned small city near the border between the Basque province of Bizkaia and the region of Cantabria in northern Spain.
