I joined the Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) as Innovation Fellow on January 2018 for the project Intelligent Language Processing for the Understanding of Financial Text, funded by the ESRC. During this project, I work closely with academics from different disciplines and industrial partners for the identification and extraction of quantitative and qualitative information from financial narrative disclosures.

From June 2016 to December 2017, I was post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund University (Sweden), and I was also affiliated to the Department of Computer Science at Linnaeus University(Sweden). During this period, I worked in the  StaViCTA (Advances in the description and explanation of STAnce in discourse using VIsual and Computational Text Analytics) interdisciplinary project, funded by the Swedish Research Counsil.
