In this sense, he has recently edited with Benno Herzog a book that includes various contributions and perspectives with the common denominator of the sociological perspective in discourse analysis. Among these contributions is a joint one with Luis Enrique Alonso with the title of “Sociohermenéutica: fundamentos y procedimientos para la interpretación sociológica de los discursos”/ “Socio-hermeneutics: foundations and procedures for the sociological interpretation of discourses” (2019).

He has also worked on the methodological development of group techniques for discursive production, particularly in small discussion groups or triangular groups, establishing both their characteristics and conditioning factors, as well as the peculiarity of their discursive production (“El grupo triangular: reflexiones metodológicas en torno a dos experiencias de investigación”/ “The triangular group: methodologies of reflections around to two research experiences”, Empiria, 2012).
