Biography

Having trained in psycholinguistics and cognitive neuroscience, I am interested in how the brain processes language in real time as well as in the time course of accessing phonological and semantic information, both in signed languages and reading.
In 2008, I completed my Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of La Laguna in Spain under the supervision of Prof. Manuel Carreiras. My dissertation focuses on lexical access to Spanish Sign Language (LSE) and the role that phonological parameters play in on-line LSE processing.
From 2008 to 2011, I worked at the Centre for Mind and Brain as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. David Corina. While I was there, my research interests were focused on how the brain processes semantic and phonological information during sign language comprehension.

During my time at DCAL, I will be working with Dr. Mairead MacSweeney using neuro-imaging techniques such as functional Transcranial Doppler sonography (fTCD) to examine how the brain processes language.
