Research interests

As a researcher in the field of social psychology and science, technology, and society (STS), my scientific career has focused on the study of the psychosocial and cultural processes involved in the production, diffusion and consumption of technoscientific innovations, especially in relation to gender and youth. My contributions include:

- Developing a critical perspective on the co-construction of gender and technology that challenges the essentialist and determinist views that often dominate this area of study.

- The development of several research projects on the social and cultural impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in different areas such as gender, education, leisure, or migration.

- The use of qualitative and innovative methodologies such as autoethnography, life histories, social theatre, or discourse analysis to explore the experiences, attitudes and practices of social actors involved in the technoscientific phenomenon.

- Participation in national and international networks and research groups, such as the Barcelona Science and Technology Studies Group (STS-b) (formerly the Research Group for Social Studies of Science and Technology) or the Inter-University Research Group on Youth and New Technologies - JovenTIC.

- The dissemination of results and reflections through scientific publications, presentations in conferences, seminars, and meetings, as well as collaboration with the media and social entities.

My medium-term interests are:

- To deepen the analysis of the ethical, political, and epistemological dimensions of technoscience, especially in relation to the challenges and opportunities posed by new forms of knowledge production and management, such as open science, citizen science or participatory science.

- To broaden the field of study of the relationship between gender and technology, incorporating other categories of analysis such as class, ethnicity, age, or sexuality, and addressing emerging issues such as artificial intelligence, robotics, or biotechnology.

- Developing research-action projects that contribute to social transformation and to improving the quality of life of people and groups affected by the problems associated with technological and scientific innovations, such as so-called behavioural addictions, the digital divide, discrimination, or social exclusion.

- Encourage the use of new literary forms in the social sciences, especially the use of autoethnographies and life stories, to go deeper into the phenomena to be studied, overcoming the limitations of traditional quantitative and qualitative methods.
