Her job is to support researchers in the initial stages of the projects with recruitment and logistics. She focuses on ensuring we deliver our research and co-design activities ethically, inclusively, and accessibly.
Raquel’s sharp sensitivity to social injustice and keen sense of curiosity have led her to conduct research in different environments and topics. From focusing on the adult education needs of immigrants and refugees in Scotland and Malta; identifying the needs of local fishermen and farmers in Costa Rica; developing financial literacy projects; to working in Corporate Social Responsibility with both private and public institutions, identifying and addressing social and environmental issues.
In her spare time, she enjoys the outdoors, meeting people from different backgrounds and learning new recipes.
