After her studies in Amsterdam she remained at the University of Amsterdam as a fulltime lector Catalan aiming to contribute to a broader international insight into a diversity of Catalan related matters. At UvA, she also got involved in the development of education and research on cultural perspectivism, images and history making.

Nowadays her professional environment is mainly concentrated in the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences where she initiated the international educational programme ‘International Virtual Consulting Firm (IVCF)’, working on real life cases in cooperation with partners institutions and business and institutional life in Barcelona and Paris. The IVCF is since 2010 implemented in the programme City Marketing in Europe and has been key to the development of new research approaches in AUAS Urban Studies. The opening of the Research Lab ‘Cities & Visitors: Mapping the Imaginary’ in June 2018 in Amsterdam Zuidoost has been a new step in the development of inter-disciplinary tools for the very needed better understanding of places’ images, identities and reputations of our cities.
