My research interests have always been focused on the area of Languages Applied to Specialised Communication, especially in the field of the discourse of business and law, which is the subject of my PhD: The Legal Discourse in English: Analysis of the Institute Cargo Clauses. In fact, I have been teaching and translating Professional English since the onset of my career, especially in the areas of law, economy and business. I have taught and coordinated numerous postgraduate courses, both at international universities (IIT, Chicago; Brooklyn Law School, New York) and national ones (University Pompeu Fabra, University of Valencia, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, ENAE Business School) in the areas of Legal, Economic and Scientific English, also publishing extensively in such areas. I have been an active member of The International Association of Forensic Linguistics and the Spanish Association of Languages for Applied Purposes, being a member of the Editorial Board of Iberica, the Journal of the European Association of Languages for Specific Purposes.

My most recent contributions have been published in Ibérica (2005 y 2010), The European Journal of English Studies (Routledge, 2007), Journal of Pragmatics (Elsevier-Springer, 2010 y 2016), The International Journal for the Semiotics of Law (Elsevier-Springer, 2011 y 2016), LSP and profesional Communication (2008 y 2014), Fachsprache (2015), RAEI (Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses) (2007 y 2016), Hermes (2016) and Quaderns de Filología (2017), Llengua y Dret (2017, forthcoming) and Journal for Intercultural Communication (2017, forthcoming)as examples.

For a number of years now I have been a Professor at the Department of Translation and Interpreting at the University of Murcia, where I currently lecture on Legal and Economic Translation. My present research revolves around the economic and legal lexicon of the Global Systemic Crisis, the translation of corruption crimes, the translation and interpretation of legal genres in the Common Law and Continental traditions, the professional discourse/power dichotomy and how gender violence is verbalized in Spanish and English legal discourse.
