My research is focused on Spanish American culture and particularly its literature. My main interests are in the short story and the novel in the twentieth century.

I have published two books and numerous articles on Juan Carlos Onetti, but in addition I have published on many other Spanish American and Brazilian authors: Carpentier, Piñera, Monterroso, Gallegos, García Márquez, Rivera, Borges, Güiraldes, Donoso, Vargas Llosa, Ramos, Fonseca, Trevisan etc.

My current research centres on intellectual life in Mexico in the twentieth century. This is a relatively new project and something of a change of focus from my previous mainly literary work.
