Research interests

Terminology, Specialized Knowledge Visualization, Multimodality, Specialized Translation, Semiotics, and Lexicography.

I am currently working on the research project VariMed, in which we are exploring terminological variation in the language of Medicine. In particular, I am interested in the visual representation of specialized knowledge in terminological databases from a multimodal perspective. The aim of this study is to provide a principled methodology to select or design images which are to be included in a terminographical resource for scientific research and popularisation of medicine. This way terminologistis will be able to coherently integrate images in term entries where other linguistic representations coexist (definitions, concordances, contexts, etc.). I am also studying, from a semantic viewpoint, how images can depict different variants of a single medical term by showing the cognitive (semantic) or communicative (pragmatic) aspects which often give rise to terminological variation.

Research stays
