I work as Full Professor at the University of Valladolid (Spain), where I held the post of Vice-Rector (Vicerrector de Economía) since 2003 to 2006. I have also taught at the Department of Business Communication, University of Aarhus (Denmark) as Guest Professor (2007-2008) and "Velux Visiting Professor" (2011-2012). I had previously stayed at the Universities of Dundee (United Kingdom) and Ottawa (Canada) for research purposes. Since December 2014, I am also Extraordinary Professor at the Department of Afrikaans and Dutch, University of Stellenbosh (South Africa).
My current research interest lies in Lexicography, particularly specialized lexicography. I am also interested in Translation and in English for Specific Purposes (ESP). As lexicographer, I defend a functional approach to dictionary making and criticism, especially the ideas defended by the function theory of lexicography.
In 2007 I was invited to teach and do research at the Department of Language and Business Communication, Aarhus School of Business, University of Aarhus (Denmark) (September to December, 2007); I have also lectured as plenary/keynote speaker at various Conferences held in Spain, Denmark, Namibia, South Africa, Germany, Belgium, United States, and China.
From 2003 to 2006, I was the review editor of Ibérica, a peer-reviewed journal of the European Association of Languages for Specific Purposes. I am currently member of the Editorial Board of different peer-reviewed journals: Hermes. Journal of Language and Communication Studies; Annual Review of Cognitive Linguistics; African Journal of History and Culture; Odisea: Revista de Estudios Ingleses; The Open Applied Linguistics Journal; Circulo de Lingüística Aplicada a la Comunicación, and Atlantis.
