Research

My primary research interests include examining the theatrical production of early modern Valencian playwright Guillén de Castro, and I am especially interested in looking at how this playwright’s innovations enhance our understanding of how theater in the seventeenth century developed.

I am also an active member of the UCLA Working Group, “The Comedia in Translation and Performance” and have worked on various translations of Golden Age comedias.
