A sociolinguistic researcher, her specialities are mainly psycho-sociolinguistics and urban sociolinguistics. Her thesis explores identity constructions in the prison world, in collaboration mainly with people who experienced their detention when they were young adults. Space there is seen to have a direct impact on these identities. She carries out her research work by means of examining the discourses. She sees it as a collaboration, in which the people providing the information must be considered as holders of knowledge, through their empirical experience: the researcher does not exist without the field.
She is not only a researcher, and is also interested in intercultural contact, cinema and literature. Her main interest lies in human encounters of all sorts.
