Her publications are all placed in the Cognitive Linguistics and Cognitive Poetics framework, among them: Poética Cognitiva: análisis textual de una fantasía (2007) and “The role of context in word meaning construction: a case study” in International Journal of English Studies (2007). At present, she is working in a research project on Narrative and Cognition directed by Dr. Manuela Romano with some forthcoming publications, among them “Guiding the listener through multi-spaced oral narratives” in Molina & Riesco (eds) Genre analyisis from a functional and cognitive perspective.
