Giovanni received his B.A. in Hispanic Studies from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras. At the same university he completed his M.A. in Sociology with the thesis Aromatización generalizada y efectos de trascendencia mediante objetos fragantes. Now he is interested in exploring the correlation between materiality, objects and understandings of femininity in La Celestina and similar texts. He is also interested in reading literature through ecological perspectives on language, as, for example, explored in Thomas Fuchs paper The Embodied Development of Language (2017).
