I completed both my undergraduate degree in Lengua y Literatura Hispánicas and the Magíster en Literatura in Universidad de Chile. Later on I was awarded a PhD in Hispanic Studies by the University of Warwick with a dissertation on Jorge Luis Borges’ and Ricardo Piglia’s work as editors of translated crime fiction in Argentina. I have taught in, and/or worked for, Universidad de Chile, Universidad INACAP, Warwick, and Exeter. I have also worked as a freelance literary translator (English-Spanish).
