I’m a PhD student at the University of Barcelona interested in the evolution of human cognition. I am part of the Cognitive Biology of Language Group, where I work under the supervision of Cedric Boeckx. I work on topics related to the molecular basis of cognitive processes and intellectual disability. I am currently interested in the role of the cerebellum in the evolution of language-related cognitive functions, and I specifically focus on Down syndrome as a possible window into understanding human evolution. I also like to write and draw cartoons. This is my online CV.
