My research interest is the presence/perception of immigration in narrative literature, mainly Italian immigration in Argentina and Brazil in late 19th and early 20th centuries. I pay special attention to how this immigration is represented in the literature produced in the cities of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and São Paulo, Brazil. I also study the different ways this type of immigration is represented in different media, such as film and newspapers, as well as other genres in literature, and the relation it has with the creation of national identity.


I also work as the editor-in-chief for Fala Aí, the magazine of the Portuguese Program at UGA, and as an active member of the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB) at UGA.
