About me

I got my Ph.D. in Media Communication (with an international mention) at Complutense University (2008). I hold a BA in Journalism, MA in Documentary Realization and MA in Fiction Screenwriting.

My field of study is divided into two main areas. The first focuses on understanding how the new narrative formulas have been included in the traditional mass media or, in other cases, how new media have emerged. My specialization in this area of study focuses on the informative power of serious games and the mobile ecosystem in the political and informative domain. My second research field focuses on the history of the mass media, mainly studying the Spanish state broadcast (Radio Nacional de España) during the Francoism and the Transition years. I have published two monograph studies and more than 40 articles in indexed magazines, among which it is relevant to highlight Comunicar (JCR Q1), El Profesional de la Información (JCR Q3 and SJR Q1), Interfaçe (SJR Q2), Media History (SJR Q1) or Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television (SJR Q1). I have done research stays in the Universities of England, the Netherlands, Denmark, France, Ecuador, and Chile, under the framework of the research grant “José Castillejo,” international research internship programs Ph.D. grants at the Complutense University in Madrid.
