Begoña has been working at IE University since 2000 and is currently the Dean of IE School of Communication. Her research and teaching interests are centered on visual narratives, language and culture, focusing on the aesthetic, cultural, anthropological and ethical dimensions of contemporary screen works, in the areas of contemporary cinema, non-fiction film, art film, advertising, and new audiovisual creations.
