I am currently in my last year of the Basque Studies degree in the UPV/EHU university (2017-to date). Back in high school, I became fond of syntax exercises and ever since my interest in linguistics has nothing but grown, which is mainly why I took up this degree. Apart from languages and their speakers, I have various interests like travelling and science popularization. This year, through an Ikasiker Fellowship of Research to collaborate with The Bilingual Mind research group, I am working on adverbs under the mentorship of professor Beatriz Fernández.
