Jérôme Jacquin is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Language & Information Sciences at University of Lausanne, Switzerland. His research draws on insights and methods from Pragmatics, Interactional Linguistics and Multimodal Conversation Analysis to investigate epistemic and argumentative stancetaking in various multimodal corpora documenting different ordinary, professional, and institutional settings. In 2016, he was awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) for a 3-year Ambizione project called ‘E-STAMP : Epistemic StanceTaking from a Multimodal Perspective’ [PZ00P1_168033]. In 2019, he was awarded by the SNF for a 4-year Research project called ‘Prendre une position épistémique dans l’interaction. Les marqueurs du savoir, du non-savoir et du doute en français’ [Taking an epistemic stance in interaction. Markers of knowing, not knowing and doubting in French] [100012_188924; www.unil.ch/sli/posepi]. From 2007 to 2011, he participated in the European Integrated Project ‘Language dynamics and management of diversity’ [FP6-028702; http://www.dylan-project.org] by analyzing the strategic dimension of code-switching in Swiss tertiary education institutions. Since 2015 and together with Aris Xanthos, he contributes to the development of linguistic game studies, by applying corpus linguistics methods to the study of video games (https://github.com/axanthos/blizzword).

Since 2011, Jérôme Jacquin has been the project leader of IMPACT, funded by the University of Lausanne. The goal of IMPACT is to develop an easy-to-use web interface for consulting, transcribing and analysing audiovisual data (more information is available here: www.unil.ch/impact). Since 2019, he has also been leading, in collaboration with Benjamin Storme and Mélanie Lancien, the LingSurvey project, whose goal is to adapt LimeSurvey (www.limesurvey.org) for teaching and research objectives in Linguistics (https://wp.unil.ch/lingsurvey/).
