Background and activities


I hold a BA in Psychology (University of Deusto, Bilbao, Spain), a Postgraduate Specialization Diploma in Neuropsychology (UNED, Madrid, Spain) and a MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience of Language from the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL, San Sebastian, Spain). 

In addition to my academic background, I have also worked as a Neuropsychologist with different clinical populations (learning disorders, Down Syndrome, Alzheimer's and other dementias).


Current research

I am currently a PhD Candidate at the Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab and an ESR at the Marie-Sklodowska Curie ITN DCOMM

My project focuses on the study of gesture and language development in autism through behavioural and eye-tracking methods.


Research interests

My research interests include the interface between language and cognition, the neuropsychology of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders and language and speech impairment.
