My main research interest is the contemporary Latin American fiction. I have published widely on the theory and practice of the Latin American short story and, more recently, on Hispanic cinema. I will be glad to supervise Ph.D. projects related to any aspect of my area of specialisation.

If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.
