Pedro Ureña Gómez-Moreno is Assistant professor at the Department of Didactics of Language and Literature at the University of Granada, where he develops most of his teaching and research activity. He received his PhD in English Language from the same university as well as a Master's Degree in new technologies applied to education from the University of Málaga

His teaching focuses on Natural language Processing and Corpus Linguistics, both at the University of Granada and the UNED. He has also been teaching English for specific purposes since 2005 in the specialties of computer engineering, health sciences, occupational sciences, marketing, and tourism management

His main areas of research are Morphosyntax and Lexicology within the frameworks of Corpus Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, with a special interest in Terminology and Knowledge Engineering applied to the development of FunGramKB Knowledge Base. He has authored and co-authored a number of refereed book chapters in Mouton de Gruyter and John Benjamins, as well as several articles in national and international journals, including The International Journal of Corpus Linguistics, Onomázein or The LSP Journal. A second line of research concerns the application of new technologies to language teaching and the development of virtual courses. In this regard, he has worked in two groups for innovative educational practices, which has resulted in the publication of both scientific and teaching materials in Comares and McGraw Hill publishers
