Other details

I hold a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Santiago de Compostela (September 2014), an MA in Advanced English Studies (September 2015) and a doctorate in English Linguistics (May 2020). My PhD research was carried out at Santiago de Compostela under funding from a four-year postgraduate grant from the Spanish Ministry of Education. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at this same University, and a member of the Research Unit for Variation, Linguistic Change and Grammaticalization (VLCG). My main research interests are English historical syntax and language variation and change. As a postgraduate student and postdoc I have carried out research at the University of Edinburgh, the University of Vigo and KU Leuven. I am the author of the monograph Argument structure in flux: The development of impersonal constructions in Middle and Early Modern English (Peter Lang, 2021), and have published in international, peer-reviewed journals such as Atlantis or Studia Neophilologica.
