Short bionote:

I am an assistant professor at the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Minho. I received a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Lisbon in 2021. My research lies at the crossroads between Second Language Acquisition and Phonology. Some specific topics that I have explored in my recent work:
-Perception and production in L2 speech learning
-Acquisition of L2 phonological categories across prosodic contexts
-Interaction between phonology and orthography in (L2) language acquisition
-Underlying representation of rhotics
-Effective tool for measuring L2 Portuguese proficiency - LextPT

Research interests:

Aquisição de L2, Fonologia, Fonética.

Education:

2021 PhD in Linguistics, University of Lisbon

2017 MA in Linguistics, University of Lisbon
