I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at the University of Miami since 2017, where I teach Spanish Cultural Topics, Medieval and Early Modern Literature, and Digital Humanities. At this moment, I am as well a visiting scholar (chercheuse résidente) at the École Française de Rome (January – July 2020).
My areas of specialisation are 15th century Iberia, life-writing literature, and translation studies. I usually work with the intersection of the Iberian Peninsula and Italy in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, reconstructing cultural and literary networks between the two. Also, as a textual and digital scholar, I explore several aspects of textual scholarship, focusing particularly on digital scholarly editions, both from a theoretical and a technical perspective. I am also interested on digital lexicography and on the first lexicographical works done in Spanish.
In 2012, after completing a BA in Classics and a second BA in Italian Studies, I earned my PhD from the University of Barcelona, and I also completed an MA in digital humanities at the École Nationale des Chartes (Paris). Afterwards, I was postdoctoral fellow at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Barcelona, Visiting Scholar at the Center for Digital Scholarship at Brown University (2013), and Lecturer in Digital Humanities in the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures at Columbia University (2014-2016).
I’m the author of a book, Las Vitae Hannibalis et Scipionis de Donato Acciaiuoli, traducidas por Alfonso de Palencia (Brepols, 2014), and a number of articles in journals such as Insula, Anuario de Estudios Medievales, Cuadernos de Filología Clásica, Revista de Humanidades Digitales, Studia Aurea, among others.
