Doctor in Hispanic Philology and Professor of Hispanic American Literature at the University of Alicante. Throughout her research career, she has focused on Hispanic American literature, particularly on Peruvian literature and the relationships between cities and literature. In this regard, relevant books include Lima en la tradición literaria del Perú, de la leyenda urbana a la disolución del mito (2003), La ciudad en la obra de Julio Ramón Ribeyro (2003) and the edition of Martín Adán’s La casa de cartón (Huerga y Fierro, 2006), in addition to other works on a number of Latin American authors, such as Ricardo Palma, Martín Adán, Alberto Hidalgo, Carlos Oquendo de Amat, Abraham Valdelomar, Clorinda Matto de Turner, Rubén Darío, Pablo Neruda, Jorge Eduardo Benavides, Blanca Varela, Raúl Zurita, Ricardo Sumalavia, Grecia Cáceres, Fernando Iwasaki, etc. Another major line of research examines the cultural relations between Spain and Latin America in the early 20th century and Rafael Altamira’s works on America. This has resulted in, among others, the book Rafael Altamira y la “reconquista espiritual” de América (2003); her work as a co-editor of several collective books: Rafael Altamira: historia, literatura y derecho (2004), El modo de mirar. Estudios sobre Rafael Altamira (2012); and La labor periodística de Rafael Altamira , vols. 1 and 2 (2008 and 2011). Equally remarkable are her works on Uruguayan and Argentine intellectuals who were active at the turn of the 20th century, like José Enrique Rodó, José Gálvez, Ricardo Rojas, Fernando Ortiz and others. Author of several publications on the presence of Don Quixote in America, she has edited the anthological works El Quijote en Perú and El Quijote en México at the Cervantes Virtual Centre, besides writing the book Tras las huellas del Quijote en la América virreinal (Bulzoni, 2010). In the field of colonial studies, she has published Ercilla y La Araucana en dos tiempos. Del Siglo de Oro a la posteridad (Renacimiento, 2016).
