"Power is gained by sharing knowledge, not by hoarding it"  


Who am I?
I am now doing my postdoc research in the Crossing Project funded by the DFG at the University of Potsdam.I have done my PhD in Linguistics (specialization Language Development) at the University of Potsdam (Berlin, Germany) in the PredictAble Project. PredictAble was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN) for understanding and predicting developmental language abilities and disorders in multilingual Europe. 

Research interests 
My interest in early language acquisition started in during my Bachelor in Applied Languages (Llengües Aplicades), but it wasn't until doing my Master Thesis that I discovered the amazing (but complex) field of early language acquisition research. Until now, I have been working on early speech perception. I'm particularly interested on the mechanisms that infants use to extract words from the input namely word segmentation, as well as how these mechanisms are related to prosody and phonological encoding. Furthermore, one of the main goals of my project (and PredictAble in general) is to find out more about these processes investigating language developmental disorders, since they can provide further information of how language is processed and preceived. 
I come from a bilingual enviromnent, research with bilingual infants has always fascinated me.

Where do I come from? 
- Current Member of Language Acquistion Group at University of Potsdam.
- Former Member of SAP (Speech Acquisition and Perception) Research Group at Pompeu Fabra University.
- Former Member of the Psycholinguistics Group at University of Barcelona.
