I am a PhD in Sociology from the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) and got my degree in Psychology at the University of Oviedo, where I started my research career. I am professor of Psychology and Educational Sciences at the UOC and researcher at the Gender and ICT Research Programme in the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3), as well as being member of the Gender Equality Unit of the same university.
I have participated in research projects funded by the Government of Catalonia, the Spanish Ministry of Education, the Foundation Jaume Bofill, the Women’s Institute, the Catalan Observatory of Youth and the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian among others. I have also been evaluator of the Association of Internet Researchers (AOIR), the Czech Science Foundation and the scientific journals Infancia y Aprendizaje, Educar, The Information Society, Equity & Excellence in Education and Computers & Education.
On 2015 I offered my PhD dissertation on the use of Internet for community development in the educational system of Catalonia. Nowadays, I am involved in diverse research projects as responsible for the methodology regarding questionnaire and survey design.
