I am a Ph.D student in the Department of Linguistics at Yale University. Before coming to Yale, I studied Letras Modernas at Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Argentina) where I did research on Spanish as a Second Language learning and communication. I wrote my thesis on the psycholinguistics aspects of Oral Communication Strategies in immersion students of Spanish as an L2.

At Yale, I am a member of María Piñango’s Language & Brain Lab, and I work on grammatical gender in Spanish and metonymy from a psycholinguistic perspective. I am also a member of CLAIS and a Graduate Fellow at RITM.
