Iris Milán, Technical support, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
I hold a BA in English Studies from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and I am enrolled in the MSc Language Sciences (with specialisation in Linguistics with Neuroscience) at University College London (UCL). I currently work as a Research Assistant providing technical support to the APINGLO-CAT Project, which is linked to the Departament de Filologia Anglesa i Germanística at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. My main duties are transcribing and coding empirical data of various sorts, including individual interviews and classroom observations (in English, Catalan and/or Spanish). I have collected data in different schools (CLIL sessions) in collaboration with APINGLO-CAT Project (FFI2014-54179-C2-1-P) and EFLIC Research Group (GRE2014 SGR693). In line with that, I have recently attended the workshop “Crosslinguistic Influence” held at the UPV/EHU for a poster presentation. In 2014, I also collaborated with the Research Project CLILSA and the Research Group EFLIC in the organization of the workshop “Learning English as a Foreign Language in Primary and Secondary School Contexts”.
My research interests include bi/multilingualism, second language acquisition in plurilingual settings, and psycholinguistics. My most recent research topic covers plurilingual instruction in CLIL contexts in primary education.
