He also teaches English Grammar and Lexical Analysis in two master degrees at the UNED (English Applied Linguistics and English Literature, respectively).

His research interests cover the syntax of Romance, Germanic and Celtic languages, Language Acquisition (both L1 and L2), Lexicon-Syntax Interface Phenomena (Lexical Semantics), as well as the Lexical-Conceptual interface. He has collaborated in several national research projects (FFI2011-29798-C02-01, FFI2011-23829/FILO, FFI2008-01584/FILO, HUM2005-01728).

Currently, he is leading a research project (ICP-FUNGRAMKB) at the UNED that is focused on Construction Grammar its computational implementation. The goal is to implement the pronominal constructions of the Spanish language into FunGramKB, a knowledge base for natural language processing.
