TAMAREDO, IVÁN

Iván Tamaredo holds a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Santiago de Compostela (June 2012) and an MA in English Studies (July 2013). He defended his PhD in 2018, under funding from a four-year FPI research grant (ref. BES-2015-071233) from the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. His PhD advisors were Teresa Fanego and J. Carlos Acuña-Fariña.

Iván has worked as a postdoctoral fellow (November 2018-September 2019) at Santiago, on a competitive grant funded by the State Research Agency, and then as a part-time Lecturer (October 2019-August 2020) at the University of Vigo. He now holds a tenure-track position as Lecturer ('Ayudante Doctor') in English Linguistics at the University of Salamanca. 

At the 41st AEDEAN International Conference (University of La Laguna) Iván received the 2017 Catalina Montes Award to the best paper presented by a postgraduate student. He has also obtained the Extraordinary PhD Award 2018-2019 from the USC International Doctorate School. In 2018 he was granted funding (ref. 02-2018-MODA.2-1306; €1.700) by the Vicerrectorate for Research and Innovation of the University of Santiago de Compostela to support open access publishing of one of his journal articles.

Iván has experience in the compilation and tagging of digital corpora; he has helped the VLCG team elaborate the Corpus of Historical English Law Reports 1535-1999 (CHELAR) in its two versions (POS-tagged and XML). He has also been involved in the organization of research meetings, such as the Fourth International Postgraduate Conference on Language and Cognition (ELC4), held at the University of Vigo (Spain) on 4-6 February 2015.

As an ERASMUS exchange student (2010-2011) Iván stayed at the University of Wolverhampton, UK. As a postgraduate student and postdoc he has carried out research  at the University of Freiburg, Germany (March-May 2017), at the Department of Linguistics of KU Leuven (June 2017), at the University of Vigo (October 2018) and at the Universidade Católica Portuguesa - Centro Regional de Braga (July 2019).
