Hi there! I am a psycholinguist, currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow working at UiT-The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø. Since August 2017, together with Marit Westergaard we run the project DIVA funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme.
I received my PhD with highest honors from Universitat de Barcelona in 2015 on an FPI grant from the Spanish state. Prior to joining UiT, I taught linguistics at the Cyprus University of Technology (Department of Rehabilitation Sciences) and held a postdoctoral research & teaching position at the University of Cyprus (Department of English Studies) in 2016-2017.
My main research specialties are language variation and development. Since 2009, I am a founding member of the Cyprus Acquisition Team (directed by Kleanthes Grohmann). In 2017, I joined the research centers Language Acquisition, Variation & Attrition, (LAVA, directed by Marit Westergaard) and Acquisition, Variation & Attrition (AcqVa, directed by Marit Westergaard and Terje Lohndal).
In 2018, I was selected to participate in Aurora Outstanding, a research initiative that aims to recruit and bring together the most promising young researchers in every discipline at UiT.
Since 2009, I am also a member of the Biolinguistics Team, initially in the task team, and then as an Associate Editor for Psycholinguistics from 2019 onwards. This is a Gold Open Access journal that is not protected by a paywall for authors/readers. My pro bono work in Biolinguistics enables me to make an active contribution towards free research and equal access to scientific knowledge in academia.
Please check my CV for more information about my research interests.
