I am a predoctoral researcher at the HiTT Linguistics Group.

I am interested in phonetics as well as in sociolinguistics, especially in language contact and linguistic attitudes.

My work focuses mainly on a specific feature of a variety of the Cantabrian Spanish, specifically on north occidental variety of Cantabria. I am also concerned with the linguistic attitudes towards the variety itself and towards the specific ethnolinguistic group.
