My teaching and research interests include the Medieval Spanish epic, chronicles, ballads, and oral tradition, and I also regularly offer a graduate/undergraduate course on Spanish Philology. Along with numerous articles, contributions to books, and bibliographies on Medieval literature, I recently published a book on an unknown prosification of the Poema de Fernan Gonzalez (Oretania Ediciones, 2008), and another one on women and the epic (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, 2005). I currently work on several research projects on the epic and private libraries.
