This is me.

I'm a research fellow in Multimodal Linguistics
in the Faculty of Linguistics & Literary Science at Bremen University, Germany.

I am teaching classes in multimodal, interdisciplinary, and applied linguistics and researching film and other multimodal documents within several projects exploring the notion of multimodal discourse. My publications include a monograph entitled Film Discourse Interpretation: Towards a New Paradigm for Multimodal Film Analysis, published in 2014 with Routledge, a collection of papers Building Bridges for Multimodal Research (published with Peter Lang), the edited collection Film Text Analysis (with Routledge), as well as several contributions and papers on the analysis of multimodal artefacts such as film, comics, etc. I am also the executive secretary of the Bremen Institute for Transmedial Textuality Research and organize lecture series, workshops, etc. at the Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Science at Bremen University. The best way to contact me is by writing an email or finding me in my office in GW2.

This is what I'm currently working on.
