Adriana Pérez-Encinas

My name is Adriana Perez-Encinas and I am a lecturer and researcher in business organisations and the internationalisation of higher education at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) in Spain. I have been an EAIE trainer for the EAIE Spring Academy since 2015 and part of the Expert Community Mobility Advising for the past two years. For six years I held the position of Head of the International Relation´s Office in the Business and Economics School at UAM. I also have been volunteering for the Erasmus Student Network since 2005, occupying different positions during this time. Last June I defended my PhD thesis, titled “International Student Exchange Experience: formal and informal Support Services in the Host University”. At the EAIE Annual Conference in Seville 2017, I received the Rising Star award. Together with the fellow Steering group members, we work to make the Expert Community more visible and accessible to all. If re-elected to the post, we have plans to make the EAIE even more valuable and beneficial for its current and future members.
