Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a Newton International Fellow funded by the British Academy and hosted by Professor Helen Fulton. My project, 'Charlemagne in Wales: The Transmission, Reception, and Translation of Charlemagne Narratives in Medieval Wales', studies for the first time all the Charlemagne material produced in Wales with the aim of elucidating how Charlemagne texts were transmitted, translated, rewritten and interpreted for their new Welsh audiences. In addition, it investigates the place of Welsh texts within wider British and European networks of texts related to the legend of Charlemagne in north-western Europe, simultaneously providing insights on their connections, shared common elements and idiosyncrasies.

I'm particularly interested in the circulation of texts in medieval Britain, especially in Welsh translations of French and Latin sources and how they provide valuable insights on cultural identity, literary and religious interests, and translation practices.

Before coming to Bristol I was Lecturer in Celtic at Utrecht University, where I taught Middle Welsh, Celtic literatures and history, and medieval literature. Prior to that I was an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Marburg hosted by Professor Erich Poppe. I'm a graduate of the University of Buenos Aires and I was a doctoral and postdoctoral researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council in Argentina.
