I’m a Lecturer in Spanish and International Politics at King’s College London, in the Department of European and International Studies. I mainly teach modules on the history and contemporary politics of Spain, as well as modules in European Studies and IR. I took up this position after finishing my PhD in Politics at the University of Manchester in Summer 2015. The thesis investigated the role of affect and social media within social movements, especially the Indignados, and the possibilities for new forms of political participation.
I graduated from Lund University, Sweden in 2009 with first class honours degrees in Latin and Political Science. Thereafter, I moved to Germany, where I undertook studies in the MA program in International Relations: Global Governance and Social Theory, at Jacobs University Bremen and University of Bremen. Here, I began to study political philosophy and in particular critical and poststructuralist theory. I subsequently wrote my MA thesis on the discourse theory of Ernesto Laclau.
