Av. El Bosque 1290, Viña del Mar, CHILE
I am René Alejandro Venegas Velásquez, born in Punta Arenas, Chile, in 1971. I lived in my beloved Magallanes’ Region until 1988. My best memories are those of my family, my schoolmates and the landscape, in particular the Strait of Magellan, the pampas and the Torres del Paine.
During in 1989, I began my university studies of Pedagogy in Spanish at the University of Playa Ancha in Valparaiso. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Hispanic Language and Literature and obtained a State Professor’s Degree in Spanish at the beginning of 1994. Between 1994 and 1995, I lived in Freiburg in Breisgau, Germany and studied at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität. When I returned to Chile, I studied the master’s degree in National Policy Management, with a mention in Education and Culture at the University of Playa Ancha. In 2002, I started my doctorate in Linguistics at the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaiso, Chile.
Since 2005, I have been working as a professor at the Institute of Literature and Language Sciences at that university. In this institution, I teach in undergraduate courses and in the Postgraduate Program in Linguistics. I am currently a tenured professor at this house of study.
During 2012, I completed a postdoctoral stay in the Chair of Romanesque Philology and Linguistics by Dr. Johannes Kabatek at the Eberhard-Karls Universität Tübingen in Germany. There, I also actively took part in the Chair of Computational Linguistics directed by Detmar Meurers.
My research, developed within the framework of the Linguistic School of Valparaiso, is in corpus linguistics and natural language processing. I am particularly interested in studying specialized discourse and semantics from a computational perspective.
