DC2 Supervisor, USC
My research fields are argumentation theory and philosophy of language. I study how people use language in daily life to do things.
I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Logic and Philosophy at USC. My research interests are argumentation theory and philosophy of language. My final goal is to understand how language works and speakers use it in daily live situations. To achieve this goal, I work on the development of theories and methodologies for digging into discourses collected from debates in the public sphere. Before joining USC, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Incipit CSIC and at the Centre for Argument Technology (ARG-tech) of the University of Dundee (UK). I’ve participated in 7 research projects, national and international, and I’ve published more than 40 papers, including journal articles, book chapters, and conference talks.
