I received my Licenciatura (B.A.) in Hispanic Philology from the University of Zaragoza and my Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures from Washington University in St Louis. I started working at University of St Thomas in 2016. For almost a decade, I have taught all levels of Spanish grammar, literature and culture courses.

My main area of research interest is Modern and Contemporary Peninsular Literature, Cultural Studies and History, on which I have written and presented at various conferences. I primarily specialize on the Spanish so-called “late” Francoist and Transitional literatures and cultures. However, my academic interests also intersect with other areas such as: Theory of Emotions, Memory studies, Spanish Exile, and Film Studies.
