I am currently Professor at the University of Poitiers (PR1) and Researcher at the Institut des Textes et Manuscrits Modernes (Archivos, UMR-8132, Paris).
My academic background is in Literature and Hispanic studies (Spanish and Spanish American studies), with a particular focus on creative processes (genetic criticism studies) and Digital Humanities.
My scientific research focuses on cultural transferts, circulation of literature, arts and ideas between Europe and the Americas during the major conflicts and crises of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Currently, I’m working on cultural mediators, on new tipologies for manuscripts and on methods for literary computing.
