At the present I have a full contract of Adjunct Professor at Canary Islands University (Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain).
I have been awarded a number of academic contracts and grants during my academic career. First, I gained the Collaboration scholarship at the Department of Historiographic Sciences and Techniques (UCM, 1997-1998). Later, I was employed as paleographer at the Institute of History of the Superior Council of Scientific Research (CSIC), gaining four prestigious grants, with national competitive funding (1999-2006).
Between the years 2006 and 2011 I was Assistant Professor at the Department of Historiographic Sciences and Techniques of the Faculty of History, UCM, teaching mainly Palaeography and Epigraphy. I also teach Palaeography periodically, mainly online, but also in tutorials.
I have a B. A. degree in History at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM, Spain, 1998), and a PhD in History at the same University (Europeus Doctorate).
I have over forty publications to my name, of which I am the principal author of all except six. These are published as articles, book chapters and conference proceedings. The majority of them are peer reviewed. I am the author of the book Papers, Notarial Offices and Archives: Scriveners of the Madrid Town Hall (1557-1610), Madrid, CSIC, 2011.
I have participated in more than ten national and foreign conferences as co-organizer, as some Interdisciplinary Conferences of the Association of History, Literature, Science and Technology (AHLiST) held at Tsinhua University (Beijing China, 2013), University of Cartagena de Indias (Colombia, 2014), University of Coimbra (Portugal, 2015), ULPGC (Spain, 2016) or Pusan University (Korea, 2017).
I have studied two months in Cambridge (Saint John’s College, United Kingdom, 2001), and twelve months in Paris (EHESS, CRH of the CNRS, France, 2002-2003). In Paris I formed part of the group of investigation conducted by the Hispanist Bernard Vincent of EHESS. I was also a member of the “Group of Investigation 4704” of the Institute of History of the CSIC, as well as of the group of investigation of the UCM, called Literary Sources for the History of Women (2008-2012). From 2012, I have formed a part of the group of Medieval Medicine Documents Identification Systems (MMEDIS).
I am also interested in archive management. I participated in the computerization and description of documents of the Historical Military Archive (Spain). More recently I gained an archival management scholarship (“FormArte”, MECD, 2012-2013), at the Archive of the National Library of Spain. I have also been employed as archivist at the Historical National Archive (Madrid), working on the archives digitalization for the network PARES (2012).
