Scientific Output

I am an anthropologist working as a scientist at the Human and Social Sciences of the National Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). As a member of the INTER Group, I have participated in several projects related to the field of Education (See below). I have also worked in different countries: US, Canada, Argentina, South Africa and Austria. My main field of interest is Racism and Racism prevention, but my whole career as a researcher could fit under the umbrella cultural contact. I have done field work on the following topics:

  • Drop Outs
  • Racism and Education
  • Intercultural Education
  • Multiculturalism
  • Spanish Converts to Islam
  • Migration and Integration
  • Argentinian Exiles to Spain
  • Cultural Identity
  • Canadian reservation System

My last finished fieldwork was carried out between 2005 and 2008 in the “Linking classrooms” of the Community of Madrid (a program to address the needs of immigrant students), within the framework of two projects on integration: Participation Strategies and racism Prevention in Schools y and II.

Since November 2014, I am working on School Dropouts in Madrid.
