I received my licentiate in English Literature and Linguistics from the Pontifica Universidad Católica de Chile on 2008. I workied as a research assistant for the psychophysiology laboratory of the School of Psychology (EPUC) of the same university.
On 2011 I was awarded a scholarship from the Chilean state to study the Brain and Cognitive Science Research master of the University of Amsterdam, and on 2014 I started working as a PhD student at the Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication. My research is titled 'Storage and processing of Dutch morphological information: Early electrophysiological responses to lexical, morphological and syntactic information', and can be accessed via LOT.
I am currently working as a lecturer at the Cognition, Language and Communication bachelor, where I have designed and taught courses on Philosophy of language, methodology of empirical research, Statistics in the R programming language and Human Cognition.
My areas of interests include automatic information processing, morphosyntactic processing, the mental lexicon, and the interaction of purely linguistic and cognition-general cognitive mechanisms during language use.
I am currently interested on researching the mental lexicon. Specifically, the cognitive mechanisms involved in accessing and retrieving lexical representations.
