I studied applied linguistics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Now I'm a PhD fellow at UCLouvain researching (online) political and media discourses about populism in Spain, France, and Belgium. I'm focusing on the uses, the meanings, and the pragmatic functions of the term "populism" and its derivatives. I examine how the term is used by politicians, media professionals, and lay citizens in different discursive and socio-political contexts.
