After studying Classics and Renaissance Studies at the Universitat de Barcelona, I undertook postdoctoral research at The Warburg Institute (University of London). I taught and researched at the University of Nottingham between 1995 and 2008. I have also been Visiting Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and at the University of Salzburg. In 2009 I accepted a Research Professorship at ICREA in the Department of Catalan at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona where I am conducting research on Renaissance literary culture. Since 1 March 2012 I am also an Honorary Senior Research Fellow, attached to the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies (University of Nottingham).
