I'm a Cognitive Linguist working on Natural Language Understanding within the framework of Frame Semantics and Construction Grammar. I'm also the head of the FrameNet Brasil Computational Linguistics Lab and a Professor of the Graduate Program in Linguistics at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora, Brazil.
