About myself

I graduated from the University of Santiago de Compostela (degree in Psychology) with honors, did a Master's Degree on Advanced Studies on Language, Communication, and related Pathologies by the same University, and defended my PhD in december of 2021 (summa cum laude), entitled "Representation and processing of grammatical gender: Analysing the gender congruency effect".

I have worked in different projects mainly collecting behavioural and electroencephalographical data in the Cognitive Processes and Behaviour group lab of the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain), the Center of Research in Psychology of the University of Minho (Portugal), the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour of the Radboud University (The Netherlands) and the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Centre of the University of Granada (Spain).

I have won competitive fellowships for my PhD and my PhD research stays from the spanish Ministry of Education; I have also won competitive fellowships from the Foundation for Science and Technology of the Government of Portugal, the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology, the German DAAD, and the Johanna Quandt Young Academy (JQYA) of the Goethe University Frankfurt. I have also gained a position as a postdoc within a project financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Andalucian Government (Spain).

My current post-doc position was obtained by winning a competitive fellowship financed by the Regional Government of Galicia (Spain). I am developing my project on the processing of gender pseudo-morphology and on the idiosincrasies of the masculine and feminine values in German and Spanish, entitled "Gender asymmetries in language processing: A study with eye-tracking in Spanish and German", in the Romance Lab of the Goethe University of Frankfurt.
