I am a PhD student of Linguistics in the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). My current research is focused on language perceptions and processing.  My previous experience as a researcher on applied computational linguistics has pushed me to the field of psycholinguistics looking for an answer to solve problems that current computational models cannot solve.
