Former lecturer in Linguistic Anthropology at University of Zulia (Venezuela), with research experience in communication studies, linguistics and social anthropology. She obtained a MA in Linguistics and Language Teaching from the same university in 2015. In her master's research, she discusses an actantial-based approach for the study of semantic roles in Spanish.
Before researching on Hispanic linguistics, she graduated summa cum laude in Journalism (2005) and obtained a teaching fellowship at University of Zulia (2008), where she was later promoted to lecturer (profesora agregada). She also holds a MA in Communication Sciences and a MA in Social & Cultural Anthropology (2011, 2013), with a research output on argumentative discourse and strategies of persuasion in mass media, digital development and religious practices in South American societies.
On September 2021, she defended her PhD dissertation at Université de Montréal ("El complemento de régimen verbal: construcción y distribución en español actual"), a corpus-based study in which she analyses the main grammatical features of the governed prepositional object (complemento de régimen preposicional) as well as its distribution across the Spanish varieties. Her thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr Enrique Pato and read by Prof. Dr Ana Serradilla Castaño (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), Prof. Dr Elena Felíu Arquiola (Universidad de Jaén), and Prof. Dr Juan Carlos Godenzzi (Université de Montréal).
While pursuing her PhD studies in Canada, she worked as a teaching assistant of Spanish (chargée de cours) at Université de Montréal (2017-2021). Between February-April 2022 she worked as a post-doctoral researcher (FRQSC fellowship recipient) at Université de Lausanne (Switzerland), and, starting from April 2022, she works at Université de Liège as a Spanish lecturer (lectrice).
Her current scholar interests focus on Spanish grammar, dialectology and sociolinguistics subjects. Her current project at Ghent University deals with the grammatical and sociolinguistic features of possesive complementation ('piensa mío' vs. 'piensa de mí').
