Teresa is an environmental researcher graduated in Environmental Science from the University of Basque Country with a Master’s in Ecological Economics in 2019. She is now focused on environmental humanities and human relations with socioecological systems. Her current PhD research at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona explores the potential of artistic and cultural expressions within the environmental movement and energy transitions.
She is currently part of CLAMOR project and developed fieldwork in Oakland, California, USA as a Visitor researcher at UC Berkeley during spring 2019. She collaborated in generating qualitative data and advancing empirical evidence on the relation between the socio-ecological transformations and artistic activism, part of the efforts to stop the construction of a coal-export terminal in Oakland.
She also works in the performing arts field, working in developing methods and experience for art-science collaboration and considers art as a tool for rising awareness about political and environmental issues.
