I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Multimodal Linguistics in the Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Science at the University of Bremen, Germany. I am teaching classes in multimodal, interdisciplinary and applied linguistics and researching film, tv series, comics, online discourses, and other artefacts within several projects within linguistics, semiotics, and media studies, particularly exploring the notion of multimodal discourse.
