She has previously served as a lecturer in Creative Research in Photography at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan and currently holds a position as a photography lecturer at the Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá. Oscillating between the factual and the fictional, her work mainly explores the connections between beliefs and the image.
