I am a linguist in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at University of California, Santa Barbara, and my main interests are phonetics/phonology, language change and translation.


In recent years I have also been active in the field of Basque Studies, for which I am honoured to have been recently re-appointed Barandiaran Chair of Basque Studies.


I work on Romance languages (Spanish, Northern Italian dialects) and on Icelandic.


I am currently the head of the Iberian Linguistics Programme, of the Phonetics Lab, and I am Faculty Graduate Advisor in my department. I am also affiliated faculty at the University of Iceland since 2014.
