    Research interests

    She is an associated member of the research group Seminario de  Estudios sobre el Renacimiento at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Translating Christianities at the University of Stirling.

    Her research interests focus on the cultural transfers resulting from different forms of mobility to and from Spain/Latin America, cultural history of the Early Modern age, the missionary texts and trans-cultural practices in Spanish America. Her main lines of research include the spread of Christianity during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries with particular attention to the Franciscan evangelization strategies in northeastern Venezuela, which was a central element in her PhD dissertation (accepted for publication by Iberoamericana-Vervuert). During her doctoral studies, she has dedicated a significant part of her research to the reception of missionary works and comparative studies of texts in indigenous languages: translation of culture(s) and cultural contexts, as well as (historical) linguistics. As a result, she has published a dozen of academic articles and reviews in well-established editorials and academic journals, such as Brill, Iberoamericana Vervuert, Indiana and Anthropos.

    She has been guest researcher and visiting lecturer at the Escuela de Estudios Hispano-Americanos (Seville), Archivo General de Indias (Seville), the Spanish  National Council of Research (CSIC), the University of Amsterdam, University of Zaragoza and the Technical University in Liberec.
