Personal profile

Research Interests


I hold a PhD on colonial Latin American studies (University of Nottingham) and on contemporary Latin American literature (Sorbonne Université). Before my appointment at Coventry University, I worked in several universities in the UK and abroad, including Potsdam Universitaet, Victoria University of Wellington, and Université d'Evry Val d'Essonne. I conduct research on cultural translation in colonial Mexico, the relationship between writers and translators, and Latin American authors writing politics.
