I'm a postdoctoral researcher working on the project 'Linguistic and cognitive factors in effective referential communication' (funded by the Research Council of Norway) with Paula Rubio-Fernandez (PI). My position is based in the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences (PPLS) at the University of Edinburgh where I work in collaboration with Hannah Rohde. The aim of the project is to investigate younger and older adults' choice of referring expressions in interactive contexts and how that relates to memory capacity, executive control, and Theory of Mind.
I recently completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh which focused on the cognitive mechanisms underlying communicative perspective-taking over the lifespan and the impact of later-life language learning on cognitive ageing.
Prior to that, I obtained my MSc in Developmental Linguistics from the University of Edinburgh, MA in Spanish Linguistics from Middlebury College (in Spain and Mexico), and BA in Spanish and English Literature from Georgetown University.
