Having lived in four different countries, I have always been interested in different cultures and different languages. Indeed, the centrality of language to all aspects of human behavior has turned me into a lifelong observer of linguistic phenomena. I support interdisciplinary exchanges, both inside and outside the classroom and always strive to combine teaching, service, and scholarship.

Between words and images, why choose? I am interested in theories of representation, both visual and discursive.
