BA Philosophy (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU). MA in Teacher Training for Compulsory Secondary Education, Upper Secondary Education, Vocational Training and Foreign Language Teaching (Regulated Position or equivalent) (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU).

I am currently undergoing my PhD Studies within Philosophy, Science and Values PhD Program (University of the Basque Country, EHU). 

My PhD research is about the processes of construction of the materiality of sex of technobodies. I am particularly interested in the relationships between sex, gender and other differences such as race, class, abilities, disabilities, age, etc. My research activities are also aimed to understand the co-constitution processes by which sex and gender appear as effects; the interactions between the technological, material, cultural and natural differences through which bodies appear as effects; sex and gender as technologies of production of subjectivity; the relationship between power and technology; and intersexuality.

I combine my theoretical feminist research with feminist activism.

My research interests also include: Philosophy of Science and Technology, Feminist Philosophy, Transfeminism, New Materialisms, Feminist Epistemology, Cyborg Ontology and Epistemology.
