In 1978 I got employed as an associate professor in Spanish at the Department of Romance Languages.
My research and teaching have been focused on Spanish (and Portuguese) syntax, phonetics, and medieval, baroque, and modern literature. Currently I am engaged in the teaching of medieval, Siglo de Oro, and contemporary Spanish history and literature and researching on 16th century Spanish drama.
I've been Dean of the Faculty of Humanities in the period 1988-90 (pro-dean 1986-1988) and again 1993-2006.
Besides that I have been adviser and contributor to the Danish National Encyclopedia, visiting lecturer and researcher at some Spanish Universities, cofounder of the Grupo Compostela de Universidades, and member and chairman of a number of committees and boards with relation to the position as dean.
