After studying Classics and Renaissance Studies at the Universitat de Barcelona, I undertook postdoctoral research at The Warburg Institute (University of London). I taught and researched at the University of Nottingham between 1995 and 2008. I have also been Visiting Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and at the University of Salzburg. In 2009 I accepted a Research Professorship at ICREA in the Department of Catalan at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona where I am conducting research on Renaissance literary culture.
Classical and Comparative Literature: Latin literary culture in Europe (1500-1780). Intellectual History and Renaissance Studies: Hispanic, Italian and European Humanism. The reception of Greek and Roman literatures in Catalunya (1480-1750).
