After moving to England, he gained a MA in Classics by research at the university of Leeds (1991), and a PhD in Classics at the same university (1995). His most recent publications are a complete translation with text, introduction and commentary of the works of Priscillian of Avila (Oxford Early Christian Texts - 2010), and a translation with introduction of Theodore of Mopsuestia’s Commentary on the Gospel of John (InterVarsity - 2010). He is now about to publish a new critical edition with translation of the Histories of Nithard (Dallas Medieval Texts and Translations) and a new critical edition with translation (in collaboration with Virginia Burrus) of the life of saint Helia (IV-V century) in the Oxford Early Christian Texts.
