I am a Professor in the English Studies Department of the University of Barcelona. My research interests include second and foreign language acquisition, age and individual differences in second language learning, young learners, and multilingualism.
I am currently involved in three research projects within the language acquisition research group (GRAL). The first one examines the EFL learning potential of in- and out-of-school exposure, with a focus on undubbed videos. The second one explores the role of age, input and aptitude in second language learning. The third one is a longitudinal study of pupils learning English in Catalan-Spanish schools (from grade 1 to grade 7).
I received the ICREA Award in 2010 and the Eurosla Distinguished Scholar Award in 2016.
