I am Associate 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.
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).
My areas of expertise are Medieval and Early Modern Iberian studies and Digital Humanities. I specialize in fifteen-century Iberia and its cultural connections with Italian humanism. This research unfolds along three main lines of inquiry: first, the role of biographical collections of famous men and women in the consolidation of the Peninsula’s historiographical and literary discursivity; second, translation theory and practice across different languages, including Italian, Latin, Spanish and Catalan; and third, the cultural exchanges among Castilian and Italian intellectuals and the transition to the cosmopolitan culture of the early modern period in Spain. Also, I work at the intersection of textual scholarship, text technologies, digital editing, and I study the history of digital methods in Iberian Studies. Finally, I am interested in the emerging identity of the digital humanities in Hispanic contexts, the so-called Humanidades digitales. This broad array of interests converges in different ways in my publications, digital projects, and outreach.
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.
