I am a Serra Húnter Associate Professor at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I am interested in language practices in multilingual and multicultural educational contexts from a perspective that integrates linguistic ethnography, interactional sociolinguistics, ethnomethodology, creative inquiry and sociocultural learning theories. I help develop primary and secondary school teachers who are prepared to educate children and youth in contexts of linguistic diversity. I am a member of the GREIP Research Centre at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and co-convenor of the AILA Research Network on Creative Inquiry in Applied Linguistics.
I am also the mother of two children, and am trying, like many colleagues, to find harmony between the demands of academia and of raising healthy, happy and decent human beings.
