I hold a Ph.D in Contemporary History from the University Complutense of Madrid/Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cinetíficas. My dissertation focused on the history of Cuban-US relations between 1933 and 1959. During and upon finishing my Ph.D. I held accademic positions in the UK (LSE-Visiting Scholar and Teacher), the US (Kluge Fellow of the Library of Congress and O'Gorman Fellow at Columbia University) and Mexico, where I lived for ten years, teaching at el Colegio de México and, most importantly, learning quite a lot from such an important experience. My accademic interests focus on the International History of Latin America, inter-American relations and the global History of the Cold War. I wrote A Compact History of Latin America's Cold War (University of North Carolina Press) and co-edited Latin America and the Global Cold War. I was recipient of the UNC-Duke Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies Latin American in Translation grant.
