After defending my doctoral thesis in Portuguese Linguistics at Stockholm University in 2004, I have worked as an Assistant Professor in Portuguese and Spanish at the universities of Dalarna, Linköping and Mälardalen. I also had the opportunity to spend one year abroad as a Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Linguistics, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brazil (2004-2005). In 2009 I got a position as Postdoctoral Fellow in Portuguese Linguistics at Stockholm University, where I coordinated the development and implementation of a new Bachelor Programme in Modern Languages at the Faculty of Humanities. I have also been teaching in both Portuguese and Spanish at the undergraduate and graduate levels and in 2011 I was promoted to Associate Professor. In February 2009 I got a Grant from STINT to build an international research network with two universities in Brazil and Uruguay. In 2010 I got an International Grant for Younger Researchers from STINT (1 200 000 SEK). Since that same year, I coordinate an international research project within which 14 participants share a set of linguistic data on Iberoromance languages from different regions and periods of time and have access to a broad and original corpus, including data from L2 varieties of Portuguese and Spanish in Africa, i.e. varieties of which there are very few earlier studies. In 2012 I was invited to spend 6 months as a visiting researcher at the Department of Linguistics, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brazil, with financial support from FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation).
