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 Research Fellow at the Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel (Germany) and at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institut für Neulateinische Studien (Universität Innsbruck), as well as 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 early-modern literary culture in Latin and in the vernacular.
Classical and Comparative Literature: Latin literary culture in Europe (ca. 1500 - ca. 1700) Intellectual History and Renaissance Studies: Hispanic, Italian and European Humanism The reception of Greek and Roman literatures in early-modern Iberia (1450-1600). In December 2022 I completed a monograph provisionally entitled Latin political propaganda in the War of the Spanish Succession and its Aftermath, 1700-1740, to be published by Bloomsbury.
