I graduated in Basque Studies in the UPV/EHU university (2017-2021) and I completed my studies with a masters in Theoretical and Experimental Linguistics at the same university. Back in high school, I became fond of syntax exercises and ever since my interest in language has nothing but grown, which is what led me into linguistics. In 2021, through an Ikasiker Fellowship of Research to collaborate with The Bilingual Mind research group, I started working on adverbs under the mentorship of professor Beatriz Fernández. I have carried out my Master’s Dissertation on the topic of adverbial modifiers and particularly, Basque manner-adverbials formed through the suffix -ki.

Now I am working on my PhD dissertation under the supervision of professors Beatriz Fernández (UPV/EHU) and Urtzi Etxeberria (CNRS-IKER). Funding for this research comes from a pre-doctoral grant from the Spanish Ministry of Universities, FPU [FPU21/05860]. The thesis is carried out at The Bilingual Mind research team (UPV(EHU) and the IKER UMR5478 research center in Bayonne, through a cotutelle between the UPV/EHU and the UPPA (Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour).
