I am PhD candidate in the Department of English and German Studies at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) and I have been granted a competitive research fellowship financed by the Diputación General de Aragón (DGA). My thesis is framed within the field of Applied Linguistics and focuses on the pragmatic strategies employed in academic digital genres by international scientific research groups for virtual communication, and, specifically, for knowledge dissemination and e-visibility. As part of the InterGEDI research group (Interpersonality in digital genres), my research interests also cover digital genre analysis and the fuzzy boundaries between the notions of genres and media in this context, which I approach from discourse analysis accompanied by ethnographic studies. Currently, I am analysing pragmatic strategies employed in genres and texts hosted in scientific project webpages, as well as in up-to-date social networks used for academic and professional purposes, with a special emphasis on Twitter.
