Ana is teaching undergraduate studio courses at The Catholic University of America since 2018.

Ana’s research investigates the sacred and secular beauty through the work of Luis Barragan. Her work seeks to identify the meaning and expression of religious buildings in today’s society and the sacralization of secular uses. While exploring the shift of the concept of beauty in relation to the shifts brought by the modern thought, she tries to show the connection between beauty and the transcendent.
