I am a senior lecturer (PhD) in the Department of English and German Studies at the Faculty of Education, Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), where I have been teaching courses on ESL pedagogy and SLA for 20 years.
I have published articles in national and international journals focusing mostly on interpersonality in academic discourse, adopting a cross-cultural and a cross-disciplinary perspective. I co-edited both a special issue of Journal of English for Academic Purposes and an edited volume on that same topic. Since 2005 I have been a member of five competitive research projects dealing with interpersonality and visibility in academic and professional discourse.
I have made research stays at the University of Edinburgh (2000), University of Michigan (2010) and Deakin University (2012). I am a member of the research group CIRES (Intercultural communication and societal challenges), financed by the Government of Aragon and the EU.
