I finished my doctoral studies in 2011, with a degree in English Philology, specialisation corpus linguistics, at the University of Freiburg in Germany. Before graduation, I got a positon as a researcher at the Department of Applied Linguistics of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, where I worked for 8 years. Since June 2017, I have been conducting research at the West University of Timisoara, Romania, my home country, coordinating the ROGER project for a period of five years. I am happy to contribute, in this way, to the development of research in corpus linguistics and academic writing in the Romanian context.
