She also carries out research at the intersection of translation and memory studies. Her research activity includes publications in top journals on these topics.

She is currently co-editor of the Irish journal Teangathe Journal of the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics and president of APTIS, the Association of Programmes in Translation and Interpreting Studies, UK and Ireland.

Research interests

Lucía's research background lies on translation and language teaching, focusing on the principles on how translation may be used as a tool in the foreign language classroom and also how it may be developed as a skill in the benefit of FL learners. Her interdisciplinary research is carried out through a framework of Translation Studies, Applied Linguistics and Cognitive Studies. 
Her current research includes also the nexus between translation and memory studies, focusing particularly on cultural artefacts during the Spanish Civil War, Franco's dictatorship and afterwards within literary translation.  ​ORCID ID: 0000-0002-7627-0440
