I am a pre-doctoral researcher at the Linguistics and Basque Studies Department in the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), as well as a member of the Bilingual Mind research group. My main research line is concerned with the processing of predicates with different argument structure types in Spanish, which I carry out under the supervision of Professor Dr. Itziar Laka and Dr. Miren Arantzeta.
