Biography

Marcela is a Research Associate at UBC’s Faculty of Management. She is a team member on the UBC Wine Industry Collaboration. Her role in the project focuses on three areas: contributing to the process, organization and strategic implementation of project activities; helping to develop creative arenas that stimulate participants to engage and inquire; assisting with research and research presentations, notably on the role of academics and universities.

Marcela was previously a professor at the National University of Mar del Plata, in the field of English as a Foreign Language, and worked in academic administration coordinating research and teaching projects at the University of Birmingham, England, and the University of Stirling, Scotland. Her experience has entailed inputs into a wide set of projects, including seminars, conferences, workshops, festivals, graduate schools, short courses and research. A major feature has been the focus on establishing and nurturing relations with colleagues in international and local networks. A significant aspect of the latter has included contributions to multi-lingual research and learning activities, and to project funding applications.

Marcela is also an artist. In that capacity, she has curated and contributed to research-based exhibitions as part of outreach activities in Canada, the UK, Italy and Argentina.
