Graduated in Speech Therapy in 2003 from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and graduated in Linguistics from the University of Barcelona (UB) in 2007. In 2013 I finished the European Master in Clinical Linguistics (Erasmus Mundus) at the University of Potsdam and Groningen. The same year, the EACEA awarded me a scholarship from the European Commission to do a doctorate in the framework of the International Doctorate in Experimental Approaches to Language and the Brain (IDEALAB) at the University of Groningen, Newcastle, Trento, Potsdam and Macquarie (joint degree). I completed my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2017 with a thesis entitled “Sentence Comprehension in Monolingual and Bilingual Aphasia: Evidence from Behavioral and Eye-tracking Methods”.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the research group The Bilingual Mind lead by Prof. Itziar Laka at the University of the Basque Country (UPV / EHU). My research interests are focused on a) aphasias and language disorders derived from sudden or progressive neurological damage; b) the role of bilingualism in normal and pathological language processing; c) changes in language processing throughout the life cycle; d) the development and adaptation of diagnostic tests to Basque and Spanish; e) evidence-based speech and language therapy.

Research interest: language processing; aphasia; primary progressive aphasia; language disorders; bilingualism; ageing; language control; executive functions; speech  and language therapy; cognitive rehabilitation; evidence-based therapy.
