I am a graduate student of Linguistics at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) under the supervision of Itziar Laka. I studied a BA in English Philology at the University of Oviedo (Spain), which awakened my interest in the scientific study of language. Afterwards, I went on to study a MA in Linguistics at the University of the Basque Country (Spain). My research focuses on the use of experimental methods in order to understand the limits of grammatical constraints. Specifically, I focus on the study of island effects.
