Personal profile

Research interests

I teach Portuguese language units in the School of Modern Languages (SML) and in the University-Wide Language Programme (UWLP).

Previously I have taught in the postgraduate MA in Translation (Applied Translation; Introduction to Specialised Translation/Portuguese).

With regard to research, my interests concentrate on two main fields:

(1) Portuguese Language. In this area, my main interests are: applied linguistics and intercultural communication; translation studies; the use of Portuguese in the Brazilian media; the teaching of Portuguese, both as a foreign and a heritage language;

(2) Brazilian Indigenous Languages and Cultures. In this area, my fields of interest are: anthropological linguistics and descriptive studies; language contact; endangered languages documentation; typology.
