Short bio

In 2012 I completed a European doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry at the universities of Hamburg and Autónoma de Barcelona. After stays in Dresden and Montevideo, I have held teaching positions at the universities of Edinburgh and East London and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship at Yale University. Currently, I am a Ramón y Cajal researcher at the University of Barcelona and I hold the I3 certification of research intensification and the accreditation as full professor. Besides, I collaborate with the Spanish Association of Mental Health Professionals, the European Network for (ex)-Users and Survivors of Psychiatry and the Global Anti-Stigma Alliance. My research interests are focused on the analysis of strategies for the awareness of mental health service users and professionals, to improve communication between them, enhancing participation of the former and critical reflection and self-care of the latter.
