Iris Milån, Technical support, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

I am a PhD student at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. My work, supervised by Dr. Albert Costa, revolves around the areas of communication and social cognition. Specifically, my research focuses on how real-time interaction can affect communication. I hold an MSc in Language Sciences (with specialisation in Linguistics with Neuroscience) from University College London (UCL) and a BA in English Studies from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).
I worked as a Research Assistant providing technical support to the APINGLO-CAT Project -linked to the Departament de Filologia Anglesa i Germanística at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. My main duties were transcribing and coding empirical data of various sorts, including individual interviews and classroom observations (in English, Catalan and/or Spanish). I also collected data from different schools (CLIL sessions) in collaboration with the APINGLO-CAT Project (FFI2014-54179-C2-1-P) and the EFLIC Research Group (GRE2014 SGR693).
My research interests primarily lie in the neural and cognitive mechanisms of language processing from a multimodal perspective. I am particularly interested in how language processing and brain coupling mechanisms are modified when investigated in social contexts.
