Senior Lecturer of Spanish

I teach several undergraduate courses on Spanish Language and Literature. My teaching methods aim to reinforce the use of both oral and written Spanish through practice and class discussions. It is also one of my goals to spark the student’s interest in the culture of Spain through the study of its literature and history.

Starting from an interest in the field of the literary studies, both the theoretical approach and literary history, my research evolved into Spanish literature, with a focus on the Spanish Golden Age.
