Research topics.

His main interests are in the areas of intersection between language, software engineering and the humanities. This includes information modeling and ontologies, information retrieval in the humanities, computational linguistics and corpus and social networks in the humanities. The research materializes in new working methodologies, techniques, metrics and algorithms or resources (reference collections, corpora, linguistic-computational models), as well as the improvement of data analysis in narrative and humanities disciplines.

Other activities.

She is currently a researcher and supervisor in the MSCA-DN HYBRIDS network ((, where she is particularly involved in the training of new transdisciplinary profiles in Digital Humanities. She has participated in many regional, national and European projects such as ARIADNE FP7, SEADDA COST Action, Big-eRisk (Early Prediction for personal risks on massive data), ACME (Heritage 3.0: Argumentation and Conceptual Modelling for Enhanced Cultural Heritage Participation and Management Policies), among others.
She is an organizer and program committee member of international conferences and reviewer for conferences and journals in software engineering, computational linguistics, cultural heritage and digital humanities. Author of numerous publications in these areas, including 2 books and more than 40 contributions to journals and conferences.
