Other details

I earned my MA in English Language and Linguistics and my PhD with distinction at Universidad de Murcia (Spain). My doctoral dissertation (2012) tested a method for deception detection in English and Spanish.
I have taught language and linguistics at the Catholic University San Antonio (Spain) and at the University Center of Defense at the Spanish Air Force Academy. Since 2017, I have been an Associate Professor at Universidad de Murcia (Spain), where I am currently teaching ESL and corpus and computational linguistics.
I have published several articles in journals, international conferences, and book chapters, several of them in top-indexed journals, within the fields of corpus linguistics, forensic computational linguistics, and specialized translation. Furthermore, I have been involved in research projects with prestigious institutions like Indra Software Labs and Universidad Carlos III, and have been a visiting scholar at Universidad de Valencia (Spain), Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Italy), Freie Universität Berlin (Germany) and Institute for Linguistic Evidence (USA).
As a linguist, I have served as an expert in forensic linguistics in several litigation matters, and I am the current Director of Research of the Institute for Linguistic Evidence.
