I have been at Colorado State University since August 1999. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Spanish. A native of Parral, Chihuahua , Mexico, I received my Ph.D. in 20th Century Spanish American Literature from Texas Tech University in 1987. My many areas of interest include: contemporary Spanish American prose, issues in culture, translation and interpreting, as well as the teaching of reading and writing skills. I have also worked extensively as a translator for the Department of Justice and other organizations.
I am also the co-director of the 2nd and 3rd year language program as well as the Language and Culture Studies Center director.
