After graduating, he took an MA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (First Class Hons) also at Complutense University of Madrid (2012). He also completed an MA in Discourse Studies (Distinction) at Lancaster University (UK), thanks to a grant awarded by La Caixa Foundation for postgraduate studies in Europe.

Since 2012, he has been working as a Cambridge-ESOL speaking examiner. He is currently working as an associate teacher at the Camilo José Cela University (Madrid)

He is particularly interested in Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), Gender, sexuality and language, Pragmatics (linguistic (im)politeness) and Computer Mediated Communication (CMC). He has presented some of his research papers in both national and international conferences.
