I received my PhD degree in Linguistics in 1997 from the University of Southern California (USC). After that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I am currently a tenured professor of Linguistics in the Department of Linguistics and Basque Studies at the University of the Basque Country, Spain, where I teach introductory courses in Linguistics at the undergraduate level and courses in phonetics and phonology at the graduate level. My area of specialization is phonology, more concretely prosody, intonation and the syntax-phonology interface. I am a theoretical linguist by training, but I couch my work in the framework or spirit of laboratory phonology. That is, I am interested in understanding about structural aspects of language based on experimental empirical evidence, gathering phonetic data from speakers of different languages and analyzing it qualitatively and quantitatively. Also, my most recent work on bilingual populations has led me to investigate the role of social aspects of language (language attitudes, degree of language contact, ethnolinguistic identity) in explaining the degree of variation in the performance of speakers. Since 2019 I am the Principal Investigator of the Basque Research Group in Theoretical Linguistics of the University of the Basque Country (HiTT in its acronym in Basque), classified as an A group by the Basque Government since 2007.
