I graduated in Philosophy and also in Information Sciences at the University of Murcia in 2006. I awarded my PhD in History and Philosophy of Science in the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2012 and the title of my thesis was ‘Terminal patient’ as an interactive class. Incurable patients in Spain (1850-1955). I was visitor scholar at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine (London, 2009), the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, Cambridge University (2010), and the Centre for the History of The Emotions, Queen Mary University of London (2011). My main research areas are the history of medicine from the patient’s point of view (19th and early 20th centuries); the material culture of experience; and the history of care. My new research project, entitled Material cultures of care and emotion in Britain and Spain, 1890-1940, has been awarded with a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship, to be developed at the Centre for the History of the Emotions, Queen Mary University of London, from September 2013 to August 2015.
