Research assistant  |  PhD Student

I have a BA in Foreign Languages (2017) from the University of Vigo and was honoured with the Premio Extraordinario de Grao (Best Degree Student Award).

In November 2016, I was awarded a scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Education (Beca de Colaboración) to work as a research assistant in the Department of English, French and German of the University of Vigo (from November 2015 to June 2016).

Also at the UVigo I completed an MA in Secondary School and Language Education (2018), with an MA dissertation entitled Posta en Práctica dunha Metodoloxía Motivadora: Unha proposta de intervención educativa para 3º de ESO.

I am currently working on my PhD dissertation about non-categorical variation in the complementation patterns of ADMIT and DENY in World Englishes, under the supervision of Elena Seoane and Cristina Suárez-Gómez.

At the moment, I am also under contract carrying out research on ICE-Gibraltar and World Englishes for ViEW. In particular, I am transcribing and codifying texts for ICE-GBR and updating information on our social media.
