I am Senior Lecturer in the Department of Language & Information Sciences at University of Lausanne, Switzerland. I am also Research Associate on the Language in the Workplace Project at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and at the ICAR lab at ENS-Lyon, France. I visited both places as Visiting Scholar funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation [P2LAP1_155110; CHF 50,300; 2014-2015].
My research draws on insights and methods from Pragmatics, Interactional Linguistics and Multimodal Conversation Analysis to investigate epistemic and argumentative stance-taking markers in various multimodal corpora documenting different ordinary, professional, and institutional settings (see Research interests for more information).
In 2016, I have been awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation for a 3-year Ambizione project entitled “E-STAMP : Epistemic StanceTaking from a Multimodal Perspective” [PZ00P1_168033 ; CHF 421,317; 2017-2020].
In 2019, I have been awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation for a 4-year Research project entitled “Prendre une position épistémique dans l’interaction. Les marqueurs du savoir, du non-savoir et du doute en français” [100012_188924; CHF 499,528; 2020-2024].
From 2007 to 2011, I participated in the European Integrated Project “Language dynamics and management of diversity” [FP6-028702] by analyzing the strategic dimension of code-switching in Swiss tertiary education institutions.
Since 2011, I have been the project leader of IMPACT, funded by the University of Lausanne [CHF 105,000]. The goal of IMPACT is to develop an easy-to-use web interface for consulting, transcribing and analysing audiovisual data (more information is available here: www.unil.ch/impact). Since 2019, I have also been leading, in collaboration with Benjamin Storme and Mélanie Lancien, the LingSurvey project, whose goal is to adapt LimeSurvey (www.limesurvey.org) for teaching and research objectives in Linguistics.
