I received my Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures, focusing on Latin American 20th and 21st century literature, from Harvard University in 2009. Since then, I have mainly worked with Spanish contemporary literature, especially with the political and critical literature published in the wake of Spain's social and economic crisis. I am the editor of the recently published Narrativas precarias: Crisis y subjetividad en la cultura española actual (2019), where a number of scholars write about the representation of the crisis in current literature.
Since 2016, I am a part of the research program Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics in World Literatures. My project constitutes a comparative approach to the literatures in Spain's four co-official languages and charts the relationship between language, literature, and nationalism.

I am also supervising two Ph. D. candidates.
