I am currently an Associate Professor - Serra Húnter Fellow (Professora Agregada Serra Húnter) in English language and linguistics in the Department of English and German Studies at theUniversitat Rovira i Virgili. I am an external collaborator at the Neuroscience of Language Lab - New York University Abu Dhabi.
I am mainly interested in morphology and its interface with syntax, semantics and phonology, as well as in argument structure and the syntax-lexicon interface. I also work on the modality of capacity/ability/capability with Elena Castroviejo (Ikerbasque, UPV-EHU). Since my research stay at the NeLLab - NYU Abu Dhabi in 2015, I am also doing research on priming in comprehension and neurolinguistic processing with Alec Marantz and his team.
I would be happy to (co-)supervise postgraduate research in the above-stated areas. I am especially interested in argument structure, unergatives, light verb constructions, derivational morphology, deverbal adjectives, and Distributed Morphology.
I received a Llicenciatura in Anglogerman Philology from the Universitat de Barcelona. I hold a Master of Science in Linguistics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D (European Mention) in Linguistics from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
Previously, I had worked as a Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin for Catalan Studies (Lectora de català) at the Universität Köln and at the Universität Bonn, as a part-time teacher (Professora associada) in the Department of English and German Studies at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, and as a part-time university college full professor (Professora Titular d'Escola Universitària amb venia docendi) in English and German languages at the University College for Tourism Studies Bettatur (URV Attached Center).
