My research specialization is the language, culture, history, and literature of XIV - XVI centuries Iberian Peninsula, especially Humanism, Renaissance, and Baroque. I am also interested in studying Medieval and Classical culture, history, and literature at the Mediterranean and Transatlantic thought.
As an educator, I hold a very active research agenda in using technology in language, culture, history, film, and literature higher education courses. I am interested in Online, Blended-Hybrid, and e-Learning courses.
