I graduated in Philosophy from the Universidad de Los Andes (Bogotá) and subsequently came to London to do a postgraduate course in early music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Following my studies in music performance, I obtained the MA degree in Area Studies (Latin America) at the Institute of Latin American Studies. I was awarded the PhD degree from the University of London in 2001.
My main research interests are in the field of philosophy and the literature of ideas in Latin America. Future plans for publication include a monograph on utopian versus realist perspectives in 19th- and 20th-century Spanish American thought.
I teach an introduction course to Argentinian literature and more specialised courses on the literature of ideas in Spanish America, twentieth-century political ideologies, and the works of J. L. Borges and J. M. Arguedas.
