Her 2002 book Guaman Poma de Ayala: entre los conceptos andino y europeo de tiempo (The Representation of Andean and European Time and Space in Guaman Poma de Ayala's New Chronicle and Good Government) examines concepts of time and space in the manuscript of a 17th century Andean author. In 2007 she received a Fulbright award to pursue her research at the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut in Berlin. She co-authored (with Nora Glickman) a book on Argentine popular theatre titled El inglés en el teatro y el cine argentino: De los orígenes a Malvinas (The Portrayal of the British Colonial Invasion in the Argentine Popular Theatre and Contemporary Film) (2011).
