"I came to Cardiff University to do my PhD under the supervision of Professor Valerie Walkerdine. Valerie is an international authority and a founding figure of Critical Psychology, which is the field I am interested in. Here, I have found a very exciting academic life, full of possibilities to develop creative and innovative research. Critical Psychology is a field that has mainly developed in the UK Universities and it is expanding around the world. In Cardiff University, I have had opportunities to interact with researchers that are conducting pioneering critical psychology and other related social sciences research both, here and around the world. I work as a lecturer at a University in Bogota, Colombia, my experience in Cardiff University has been very enriching for my future as an academic."
