Ph.D. in Literary Theory (University of Salamanca, Extraordinary Award, 2016).

I do interdisciplinary research on the literary imagination. I am interested in the processes of poetic thought and in the relations between science and literature, particularly in the Francophone and Hispanic domains.

My research in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory has been carried out since 2011 within the framework of the ILICIA – Literary Inscriptions of Science group, at the University of Salamanca, and during 2020 at the Center Pléiade of the Université Sorbonne Paris Nord. In these contexts, I explore both the epistemological dimension of poetry and its cognitive value through literary research, translation, teaching, and creative writing.

I have conducted research stays at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris III (2013), and at the Université du Québec à Montréal (2015), have been a postdoctoral researcher at the Donostia International Physics Center within the Mestizajes program (2015-2017), and have been Assistant Professor at the Romanisches Seminar of the Christian-Albrechts University zu Kiel, (2017-2019). Currently I work at Comparative Literature and Literary Theory Departement of the University of Salamanca, where I develop a research line on cognitive poetics.

I am the author of Science and Modulation of Poetic Thought (2017), and have co-edited the collective works Inscriptions littéraires de la science (2017) with Amelia Gamoneda, #Nodes (2017; 2019) with Gustavo Schwartz and Entornos de la traducción (2020), with Javier Gómez-Montero. Among my research interest are:
