who am I?


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.

  1. I think this is a great topic for research – and I’m really glad to see it has been funded!

    I’m just finishing a bid for funding for a project on childcare from 1789 to 1930 in England and Australia so if it is successful I’d love to get your views on it.We won’t be tackling the material side of it, though actually that would be a really interesting element.

    Good luck with it, and I hope to read more about it soon.

    1. Thank you very much! And your project looks fascinating! I’m quite interested in childcare (not for personal purposes only!), as you can imagine and I’m really eager to know more about the project… so, let’s keep in touch.

      all my best
