Antoni Hernández Fernández

I am physicist, linguist and PhD in Cognitive Science (Linguistics). My current research interests include Education in a broad sense (gamification, project-based learning, technology education, technoethics, etc.) and of course Quantitative Linguistics, i.e. the study of general patterns in language and in communication systems.
