My research focuses on the modernization of Mexico from the perspective of Musical Criticism, during the late Nineteenth century and first years of the Twentieth century, known as El Porfiriato. In particular, I study the influence of French ideas on Mexican notion of progress, civilization, cosmopolitism, and opera; and how they were adapted into the Mexican context.

I completed my BA in Humanities at the Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP) in Mexico, in which I studied Philosophy, Art History, Literature, and Music. Afterwards, I did a Master in Musicology at Universidad Veracruzana, where I wrote a dissertation on the music criticism of the Mexican composer Gustavo E. Campa (1863-1934), around 1883 and 1893. My PhD research focus on a wider scope of Mexican and French critics, opera, networks, cultural transfer, and global history.
