Biography

After completing a BA in English Studies at the University of the Balearic Islands and a brief spell working as a Spanish-language teacher in Scotland, in 2010 I was appointed Graduate Teaching Assistant at Bangor University’s School of Modern Languages and Cultures, where I started my PhD in Hispanic Studies (awarded in 2015). My doctoral thesis analysed the work of Catalan author Quim Monzó (Barcelona, 1952) as a paradigmatic case study to trace the tensions, contradictions and shifts experienced by contemporary Catalan culture since the early 1970s until the present day. In September 2015 I took up a fixed-term Lectureship in Hispanic Studies at Bangor University (2015–2017). In the academic session 2016–2017 I was a Visiting Lecturer in Catalan Studies at the University of Birmingham. I joined the University of Exeter in September 2017.
