I have served as Department Head and Professor of French at New Mexico State University since July 2012, having previously worked at Calvin College as Professor of French, Chairman of the Department of French, Director of semester abroad programs to France and to Hungary, and Director of several January interim courses in France, Quebec, and Martinique. My long-standing scholarship interests consist of twentieth and twenty-first century literature, contemporary poets, and stylistics. I am the author of two books on French poets and numerous critical articles on French authors: André du Bouchet, Lorand Gaspar, Emmanuel Hocquard, Paul Claudel, Guillevic, Saint-John Perse, Frédéric Boyer, Mathieu Bénézet, and on the intersection of linguistics to the study of poetry. More recently, I am a proponent of the place of the humanities in university and public life. As an administrator, I seek to hone my skills and to expand the sphere of my activities.

I am a computer scientist currently working as a research funding manager at Harz University in Wernigerode, Germany, where I am also teaching Statistics as an associate lecturer. Beyond that, I am a senior photonics researcher at HarzOptics GmbH, a research institute affiliated with Harz University. In my spare time, I am enrolled as a distance education student at Hagen University, where I am studying Environmental Sciences towards an M.Sc. My special area of interest is light pollution.
I graduated in Musicology at the University of Salamanca (Spain) in 2001, studying part of my degree at the Music Department of the Royal Holloway (University of London), In 2002 I won a doctoral scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Education to do my PhD at the Department of Archeology and Anthropology at the Institució Milá i Fontanals (Spanish National Research Council). This period of study also included a research stay at the Music Department of the University of Texas at Austin, USA (2004). I completed a PhD in anthropology at the University of Barcelona (Spain) in 2008. My dissertation explored the musical practices of the Cuban diaspora in Barcelona. In 2011 I moved to Lisbon (Portugal) where I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Instituto de Etnomusicologia (INET-MD) of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa thanks to a postdoctoral research fellowship from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. More recently I have been working as a research fellow at Queen’s University Belfast. I have been presenting my research regularly in national and international conferences. In 2012, I published my first monograph (Cubaneando en Barcelona. Música, migración y experiencia urbana) in the distinguished collection “Biblioteca de dialectología y tradiciones populares” of the CSIC’s Publications Department (Madrid). I have giving lectures and courses in many European universities, including University of London, INCIPIT-CSIC, Universidad del País Vasco, Universitat de Barcelona, etc. Since 2012 I have been teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the Music Department of the Faculdade de Ciềncias Sociais e Humanas (Universidade Nova de Lisboa). I have extensive experience in the organization and management of research and development activities. I was appointed appointed member of the Board and secretary of the SIBE-Spanish Society for Ethnomusicology (2006-2014). I am also an active member of several international learned societies in the fields of anthropology and music studies (SEM, ICTM, EASA, SIBE). I have contributed to several national and international research projects, participating in the creation and scientific coordination of the research network LXnights, based at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. In 2013 I was appointed as editor of TRANS-Transcultural Music Review, a leading scientic journal in the field of music studies in the Spanish-speaking world. I am also member of the Editorial Board of the journal Cadernos de Arte e Antropologia and Archiv für Textmusikforschung. My scientific judgment is often required by different national and international institutions to evaluate academic work.
