I have a BA in Elementary School Teaching (2010) and a BA in Foreign Languages with a specialization in English Linguistics (2016), both from the University of Vigo. I completed an MA in Advanced English Studies at the same University, where I also wrote my dissertation on “Synchronic Variation in Clausal Complementation: The case of regret in British and American English” under the supervision of Elena Seoane. In November 2015, 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).
In December 2017, I was awarded a two-year predoctoral grant from the University of Vigo to condunct my PhD research. In 2019 I obtained a four-year FPI research grant from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. My PhD is entitled "Variation in the clausal complementation system in World Englishes: A corpus-based study of REGRET" [International doctorate] and my advisors were Elena Seoane (University of Vigo) and Manfred Krug (University of Bamberg).
Currently I am a full-time postdoctoral fellow at the University of Vigo on a competitive one-year grant funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness.
I am a member of the ViEW research project (Variation in English Worldwide), a member of the LVTC (Language Variation and Textual Categorisation) research group and of the ELC (English Linguistics Circle) network.
Currently, I am a full-time posdoctoral researcher in the project A register approach to morphosyntactic variation in World Englishes and compilation of resources for its study (The International Corpus of English - Gibraltar); PI: Elena Seoane (Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness; grant FFI2017-82162-P).
I have also participated in the following projects:
In November 2017, I worked as a research assistant in the LVTC group (Regional Government of Galicia; grant ED431C 2017-50).
From July 2016 to August 2017, I worked as a research assistant in the project Morphosyntactic variation in World Englishes and compilation of resources for its study (the Gibraltar component of the International Corpus of English, ICE-GBR); PI: Elena Seoane (Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness; grant FFI2014-53930-P). I was in charge of the transcription and codification of texts for the Gibraltar component of the International Corpus of English (ICE-GBR).
