Her research focuses on the contestation, subversion and resistance of labour and other social movements to capitalist relations of domination.

She takes pride in being a committed educator to students and a mentor to faculty. She has supervised dozens of MA dissertations/thesis, examined 5 PhD theses and supervised/directed 2 theses in the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.
