Research interests

My interests revolve around the mental processes when acquiring, processing and
producing language; and how we construct meaning, from morphosyntactic and pragmatic rules and the way we conceptualize the world and our experiences. I am also interested in the way in which languages differ and, at the same time, resemble each other, and how people manage to use different languages in their lives. Shortly, I could say that my interests range from the interface between morphosyntax and semantics, psycholinguistics, bilingualism, and linguistic variation.

Recently, I started studying the processes involved in metonymy and how our conceptual and linguistic systems interact with each other while engaging in the expression and construction of meaning.

As an undergraduate student, I worked on Spanish as a Second Language and psycholinguistics. I also worked on the semantics innovations of the COVID-19 pandemic; Misiones’ portuñol morphosyntactic characteristics; and on non-binary Spanish (also called “lenguaje inclusivo”) and its sociolinguistic representations on social media. I also co-founded the first Linguistics student journal at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, which you can check out here.

During 2021, I was a Research Assistant at the Bilingualism, Mind, and Brain Lab at UCI, under the supervision of Dr. Judith Kroll, and I worked on bilingualism, memory, and emotions.
