I am Associate Professor of English Linguistics at Paris 8 University, France. I am also a researcher at the MoDyCo laboratory of the University of Paris Nanterre. I hold a PhD in English linguistics from Bordeaux University and an Habilitation from the Université de Paris. I am the recipient of a 5-year honorary position (2017-2022) at the Institut Universitaire de France, a division of the French Ministry of Higher Education that distinguishes university professors for their research excellence.
I am interested in cognitive linguistics, corpus linguistics, construction grammar, sociolinguistics, language change, and terminology.
I am the author of a reference textbook on corpus linguistics with R: Corpus Linguistics and Statistics with R (New York: Springer). I have a research blog: Around the word, A corpus linguist’s notebook, where I record reflections and experiments on my practice as a usage-based corpus linguist. I am the current editor-in-chief of CogniTextes, the journal of the French Cognitive Linguistics Association.
