Biography

I obtained my degrees and started my professional career at the University of Girona (Girona). In may 2009 I moved to Oregon and a few months later I started teaching Spanish at OSU, where I have been teaching mostly second and third year courses, both on campus and online. I have been coordinating the Spanish degrees online at OSU since January 2015.

During my free time I like to spend time either with my family, outdoors, weather permitting, or riding my bike.
