Other details

I work as Senior Lecturer (Profesora Titular) in the Department of Filología Inglesa, Francesa y Alemana at the University of Vigo (2019-). Prior to that, I held two Senior Research Fellowships also at the UVigo: "Investigadora Distinguida" ("Distinguished Research Fellow", 2017) and "Investigadora Ramón y Cajal" (2012-2017). In February 2017 I was appointed Honorary Research Fellow by the University of Manchester (UK), Linguistics and English Language Division.

Before moving to Vigo, from 2007 to 2012 I held a full-time position as Lecturer in English Language in the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Manchester, with specialisation in the history of English. Manchester is the University where I completed my PhD thesis (2007) and my MA studies in English Studies (2004), supervised by Prof. David Denison . My predoctoral studies were financially supported by various grants from the Xunta de Galicia, Caixa Galicia and the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
