Before joining the Department in September 2017, she was a Post-doctoral Researcher and Lecturer at the Department of Media and Culture Studies at Utrecht University. As a Post-doctoral researcher, she was a member of the NWO funded research project "Persuasive Gaming in Context" (www.persuasivegaming.nl) in which she explored the potential of digital games as media for persuasion. 

Teresa started her academic career at the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain in 2006 where she conducted research in the fields of new media and serious games. In 2010 she was a visiting PhD Candidate at the University of Amsterdam, where she spent four months under the supervision of Professor Jan Simons. Later on, in 2011, she moved to the Netherlands where she obtained an International PhD Fellowship to finish her PhD “Persuasive Structures in Advergames” at Utrecht University. Her thesis has been awarded as the Best Academic Work in the Field of Media Studies by the Consell de l’Audiovisual de Catalunya (Spain) in 2013.
