Bio:

My research fields include multimodality, applications of cognitive linguistics to film, advertising and art, and humor in the media and in the Foreign language classroom. My main publications are Puro Teatro: Metafora y espacio en el cine de Pedro Almodovar (Editorial Libertarias, Madrid, 2010), a co-edited volume with Prof. Ch. Forceville Multimodal Metaphor (Mouton de Gruyter, Berlin, 2009), and Ejercicios de pragmatica, with G. Reyes and E. Baena, (Madrid: Arco Libros, 2000). I have also published articles in humor, Greek comedy and literature, and poetry in Spanish.
