About me

I am an Assistant Professor of French and English Language Teaching at Universidad Central del Ecuador, in Quito. I am also a research fellow at ITEC, an imec research group at KU Leuven, and CENTAL+TeAMM at UCLouvain in Belgium.

I work on dialogue-based CALL, more precisely on task-oriented dialogue systems (chatbots) for language learning, at the intersection of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and natural language processing (NLP). My research focuses on the instructional design and the evaluation of the effectiveness of dialogue-based CALL systems for L2 proficiency development, in particular L2 fluency.
