Professional biography

I am a Lecturer in Spanish at the Open University since 2017.

MA in Humanities, MA in Linguistics and MA in Ancient Languages and Cultures. In 2017, I completed a dissertation on Studies on linguistic and orthographic variation in Old Babylonian letters and was awarded a PhD degree at the Philipps-University Marburg (Germany), with magna cum laude distinction.

Before joining the OU, I have taught Spanish for five years at the Philipps-University Marburg (Germany) and I have worked as a FPI researcher at the Faculty of Philology of the University of Barcelona (Spain).



Research interests

My research interests include the use of language corpora and (socio-) historical linguistics to investigate the mechanisms of language variation and change on a broad typological perspective.

Teaching interests

Language diversity and language learning.

Member of the Societas Linguistica Europaea
