He worked there on Learner Corpora. After a brief stay at the Universidad de Castilla La Mancha as a assistant professor in English language, he moved to the Universidad de Granada (Spain) in 2006, where he is currently an associate professor in applied linguistics. In 2017 he obtained a Fulbright visiting researcher scholarship to work with Paola Dussias at Penn State University (USA) .
