I am Associate Professor of Spanish with a focus on literary studies and mainly teach Spanish and Latin American literature and film.

In recent years, my research has focused on contemporary Spanish literature, particularly on 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). I have also worked with comparative literature in Spain--literature written in Spanish, Catalan, Basque and Galician. Since 2016, I participate in the RJ-funded research program World Literatures: Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics (http://worldlit.se), with a project that maps the relationship between language, literature and national identity in the different literatures of Spain.

I received my Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard University in 2009, focusing on 19th and 20th century Latin American literature.
