From 2006-2009 she was Senior Researcher on the UK-based No Outsiders project, an action research project investigating approaches to address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality in primary schools. She held a Research Fellowship (Isidro Parga Pondal) at the University of Vigo (Spain) from December 2009 to September 2010, and has been a member of the Faculty of Education Sciences at UDC since September 2010. She is currently directing a research project investigating understandings and practices regarding integration of immigrants in Galicia (2014-2017, funded by the Xunta de Galicia).Her research and teaching has focused on equalities and social justice in terms of race, ethnicity, language, sexuality and gender. She is mainly interested in the social construction of marginalization within and beyond schools, ways in which success and failure are co-constructed in institutional settings, and the design of counter-hegemonic institutional contexts and classroom practices.
