About me
I am an independent researcher specialized in Linguistics, with proficiency in both Portuguese and English languages.
I have a Master degree in Language Sciences and more than seven years of work experience.
I worked in East Timor and Portugal lecturing Portuguese and English Languages and Literatures, Linguistics, and Didactics.
Apart from my experience as a language teacher and translator, I also worked as a research grantee at the University of Minho, in the area of Computational Lexicography. I worked with corpora in a project that aims to build a lexical database of the Portuguese language. Some of my responsibilities include the compilation and analysis of corpora, the definition of lexical entries, the semi-automatic insertion of language information, the inclusion of semi-automatic linguistic information in a lexical database and writing scientific papers.
