He holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Hispanic Studies, Spanish Linguistics and Literature tracks, from Texas A&M University; and a Bachelor of Arts in three areas: Spanish, Romance Linguistics (Self-Designed), and French Studies (Self-Designed); with a minor in Italian, from The College of New Jersey. 


He has two published co-authored manuscripts, the first, it examines code-switching, code-mixing in the Texan popular music:, and a second one, it investigates lexical borrowing in the language of technology and fashion and beauty:


Damián’s dissertation focuses on historical contrastive pragmatics by analyzing forms of address (of second-person pronouns) and impoliteness phenomena (vocatives of insults) in Cervantes' work and the first known Early Modern English translation of Don Quixote (1607-1620).
