She brings expertise in policy research and evaluation, having worked on capacity-building projects for governments, defence institutions and non-governmental organisations. Cristina is also confident in delivering remote training sessions to large audiences in multiple languages. Because of her experiences working overseas, Cristina has a highly collaborative mindset and feels strongly about the importance of dialogue to bring about positive change.
Before Nous, Cristina worked in capacity building for civil society organisations. She compiled, revised and analysed project data for the EU-funded STRIVE Global and WONDER Foundation. STRIVE’s main goal was to build the capacity of state and non-state actors to challenge radicalisation into violent extremism while continuing to respect human rights and international law. At WONDER, she volunteered as a researcher and familiarised herself with the project cycle of management and logical frameworks for intervention. Since 2020, Cristina has supported NATO as a researcher and instructor on a casual basis.
Cristina enjoys playing tennis and learning foreign languages. She also loves to spend time with her family in Spain
