She is a filmmaker, journalist, researcher and teacher.

Since 2016 she has been a member of the Spanish Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AACCE). She teaches courses, seminars and masterclasses at various national and international universities. She has recently released her third feature film, Canción a una dama en la sombra (2021).

She has written and directed the film Esa fugaz esencia que dejaron los sucesos, selected for the Simfonies de ciutat project and produced by the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) in collaboration with Dones Visuals, which premieres at the D'A Film Festival 2022.
