Biography:

My current research is focused on the transition from the Old Hispanic (or 'Mozarabic') rite to the Franco-Roman rite in medieval Iberia. Since these rites largely comprise chants, I study their relationship through interdisciplinary analysis of their musical repertoires. Before joining University of Cambridge, I was a postdoctoral researcher of ERC, AHRC and Leverhulme research projects exploring the Old Hispanic rite at University of Bristol. Previously, I completed my PhD dissertation 'Text, liturgy and music in the Old Hispanic rite: the vespertinus genre' at University of Bristol, and an MA in Hispanic Music at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Since 2016, l serve as the Coordinator of Old Hispanic Manuscripts for the Spanish Early Music Manuscripts database. I am also a member, since 2011, of the research project 'El canto llano en la época de la polifonía' at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. I have a BA in Music (Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid) and a BA in Social Communications, Audiovisual (Universidad Católica Andrés Bello, Caracas).
