I started as a researcher at the University of Antwerp in October 2015. Before coming to Antwerp, I graduated in Classical Philology from the Complutense University of Madrid and obtained a Master degree in Linguistics from the Free University of Berlin. During my studies I have been mostly interested in finding out how to provide quantitative and computational support for research in different branches of linguistics such as sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics or variational linguistics. In line with my fascination for computational approaches, I have done work on building valuable and inexpensive linguistic resources from the web (compiling web corpora, web scraping, social network mining, etc.) as well as data visualisation.

With my research I hope to bring computational linguistic methods closer to linguistic research and to contribute to bridging the gap between modern technology and the humanities in agreement with the tenets of the Digital Humanities community.
