I am an Assistant Professor of English Literature at the Department of English Studies of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I also currently serve on the board of directors of the Madrid Institute for Advanced Study (MIAS). My research focuses on the study of early modern drama, and more specifically on the comparison between the dramatic literature and theatrical cultures of Shakespearean England and Golden Age Spain. I hold a joint Ph.D. in Early Modern European Literature and History from the University of Kent and the Freie Universität Berlin supported through an Erasmus Mundus grant of the Text and Event in Early Modern Europe (TEEME) Programme. I have also worked as a DRS HONORS post-graduate researcher and lecturer in English Literature and Cultural Studies at the Institut für Englische Philologie of the Freie Universität Berlin. I am currently preparing a monograph titled Playgrounds: Urban Theatrical Culture in Shakespeare’s England and Golden Age Spain, which compares the dramatic cultures of early modern England and Spain in terms of infrastructures, physical arrangements, and production techniques, and explores the causes and consequences not just of the visible differences, but also of the remarkable similarities between the two theatre systems.

As Associate Professor of Linguistics at the Faculty of Humanities and social sciences of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, I spent most of my time researching on Formal Semantics, Grammar, Computational Linguistcs, (Speech/Multimodal)Corpus and Annotation. Examples of topics I find especially interesting are:

  • The relationship between pragmatics, semantics and grammar of natural languages: How does the context influence our way of expressing ideas?
  • The formalization of grammars using current mathematical theories: Can we analize natural languages with logical rules?
  • The grammar of orality: What do our writing and our speech have in common?
  • Computer mediated communication and the language of the new media. Are we actually speaking differently?

Trying to resolve these problems I have been dealing with other exciting topics such as machine translation, the acoustic features of speech and the transmission of information in multimodal contexts.
