    Personal profile

    General

    At the intersection of Cultural Studies and the Medical Humanities, my research investigates cultural narratives of dementia-related diseases in Latin America. It aims to make an inter-disciplinary contribution to raising awareness about and reducing stigma around these diseases, whilst also working towards offering Humanities-based ‘pathographic’ training to equip medical students to offer empathetic and ‘patient-centred’ dementia care.

    I am an experienced and energetic teacher who was nominated in four consecutive years from amongst the 7000 staff at my previous institution (UCL) for the ‘Outstanding Teaching Award’. 

    Before taking my MA (King’s College London) and PhD (University of Nottingham), I lived in Latin America for four years working as a lecturer (UAM Nicaragua), translator and interpreter (Cuban National Assembly) and cultural correspondent (Radio Habana Cuba).
