I live in Manchester, UK, and work at the Manchester Metropolitan University where I am a Principal Lecturer in Spanish Studies and director of the Research group Film, Languages and Media in Education (FLAME). For information about my work, click here.

I am also the co-founder and co-director of Film In Language Teaching Association. I also collaborate with HOME.

My research interests are in Spanish literature and film studies (auteurism and popular genres). My other research interest is film pedagogy: the use of film in language teaching.
