I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics at the University of Barcelona in 2015 with honours. During my studies, I spent half a year in Saint Petersburg, Russia, with a generous Eranet-Mundus Mobility scholarship.
After that, I followed the Erasmus Mundus Master Language and Communication Technologies, which took me to Saarland University (Saarbrücken, Germany) and the University of Malta (Msida, Malta), for a year each. My Master’s thesis on near-synonymy can be found here.
During my studies, I worked as a student assistant in four occasions for the University of Barcelona, Pompeu Fabra University and the University of Saarland, working in different (computational) linguistics-related topics, such as corpus annotation.
My mother tongue is Catalan, I speak Spanish fluently; English, Russian and French decently enough, and some German. My name is pronounced
['ajnə] and my two last names
