I did my first degree in English Philology at the University of Vigo (Spain). I moved to the University of Manchester in autumn 2002, where I took my MA in English Studies in the Department of English & American Studies (An Historical Approach to Preposition Stranding in Early Modern English, 2004) and completed my PhD thesis in the Department of Linguistics & English Language (Preposition Stranding and Prescriptivism in English from 1500 to 1900: A Corpus-based Approach. 2007).
I took up the post as a Lecturer in English Language, with specialisation in the history of English, in August 2007.
In February 2012 I was awarded the Senior Research Fellowship Ramón y Cajal by the Ministerio of Economía y Competitividad of Spain to join the University of Vigo. For my activities since 2012 see further here.
