I’m an AHRC-funded doctoral student at King’s College, Cambridge, where I am researching how memory was theorized and practiced in early modern Spanish literature and culture under the supervision of Prof Rodrigo Cacho. I’m also interested in Medieval and 20th-century Spanish literature; the History of Rhetoric and Poetics, with an emphasis on memory and visual culture; and cognitive approaches to literature and rhetoric, particularly cognitive pragmatics and embodied cognition
