PhD in Film and Media studies at the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU (2015) and awarded ex-aequo as the 2015 Best Doctoral Thesis by the SGAE Foundation. Her thesis looked into the economics and production conditions of Basque-language cinema, based on the recent Culture Policy of the Basque Government. In 2016 she obtained from the Basque Government the Basque Visiting Fellow grant to join the Centre for Cultural Policy Research (CCPR) at the University of Glasgow. Her research interests are focused on the national audiovisual structures as well as the protection policies for minority language media. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Edinburgh (Celtic and Scottish Studies Department) working on a three-year project about minority-language media in Europe with a stress on Scottish Gaelic broadcasting, under supervision of Professor Robert Dunbar. Previously to her academic career, she has worked as a journalist, communication and production assistant on TV, press and cinema.
