Sofía ALBERO-POSAC


I am a research fellow at the Department of English and German Studies (University of Zaragoza), where I started working in September 2018, after being granted a national competitive research fellowship (FPU) financed by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. Currently, I am also a member of IEDIS (Instituto Universitario de Investigación en Empleo, Sociedad Digital y Sostenibilidad). I am writing my PhD thesis on emerging digital academic genres under the supervision of Dr. María José Luzón. My main research interests include genre ecologies, academic writing and multimodality.
