Research Overview

My current research deals with the multimodal representations of discourses of migration in the British and Spanish online press. I advocate a Cognitive Linguistic Approach to Critical Discourse Studies (CL-CDS), and I am working on a methodology that can shed light on how audience perceptions might be influenced by both shared cognitive capacities and the multimodal constraints of online newspaper discourse. Previously, I have conducted research on the valorative mechanisms portraying Trump's campaign in Spanish and British newspapers.

Other interests include manipulative uses of language and images overall, multimodal analysis and theory, and both English and Spanish Cognitive Linguistics.
