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, where I was invited as Visiting Scholar and 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 stancetaking 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 called “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 called “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.
