Me as a Researcher

I carried out my doctoral research on temporal reference in English and Romance languages (French, Italian and Romanian), in which I adopted an empirical perspective (corpus work, contrastive analysis and offline experiments). I am interested in the expression of temporal reference in natural language by looking at typologically different languages, such as tense-prominent, aspect-prominent and tenseless languages (VTS project). In the past, my research targeted new methods for improving the results of machine translation systems by adding pragmatic information (research carried out in two Swiss inter-disciplinary projects: COMTIS and MODERN).

In the recent years, I have been working on offline and online experimental investigations of human processing of verbal tenses, temporal connectives and temporal adverbials, as well as on their rich inter-relations. I work also on the pragmatics of negation and its cognitive processing, as well as on the human cognitive processing of temporality in natural language and its tight relations with causality (Processing temporal relations project). More recently, I have also been asked to provide my scientific expertise in two other interdisciplinary research projects: one in language pathology (aphasia and Alzheimer disease) and one in criminal law and criminal procedures.

Me as a Project Manager & Coordinator

Currently, I am coordinating the national nodes of two European infrastructures: CLARIN – the Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure and DARIAH Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and the Humanities. The coordination office of CLARIN-CH is hosted by the University of Zurich at the Zurich Center for Linguistics. The coordination office of DARIAH-CH is hosted by DaSCH – Swiss National Center for Data & Services for the Humanities at the University of Basel.

Previously, I have managed two empirical research projects in language sciences. As a project manager, I was in charge of conceptualizing research projects, writing the grant proposals, evaluating the risks and proposing potential solutions, preparing the milestones and the timeline, preparing the application on the submission platform, communicating with the funding agencies, organizing the team meetings, coordinating the experimental research according the timeline planned, analyzing the data, reporting on the results, and writing the scientific and financial reports.

Me as a Scientific Consultant

To share my experience of conceptualizing and writing efficacious scientific content in order to help other academics, I have co-founded a digital agency called PRO°°LOGOS| Scientific consulting & Content management. At PRO°°LOGOS, we provide outstanding services of scientific consulting and content management for academics and companies. Check out our webpage and drop us an email at contact@prologos.expert if you want to benefit of our services. One of our main customers is the Faculty of Architecture of the Wroclaw University of Technology from Poland. We have been providing scientific coaching and support to architects-engineers for conceptualizing and conducting empirical studies, performing statistical analyses of their data, and publishing the results in international specialized journals.

The wish to develop my skills constantly – and to surpass my previous achievements – has always been my key to success. As such, I am currently enrolled in an online specialization certificate in Business Foundations (Wharton ONLINE Business School) to learn about sales and marketing strategies, financial accounting, corporate finance, managing social and human capital and operations management.
