This is me.

I am an Assistant Professor in Language and Social Interaction in the Deparment of Communication and Information Studies at the University of Groningen, Netherlands.

Before, I worked as a Research Fellow in Multimodal Linguistics in the Faculty of Linguistics & Literary Science at Bremen University, Germany, together with John Bateman.

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, the textbook Multimodality from 2017, several edited collections, as well as several contributions and papers on the analysis of multimodal artefacts such as film, comics, social media, etc.

I am also one of the editors of the journal 'Visual Communication'.

The best way to contact me is by writing an email.

This is what I'm currently working on.
