Gema Chocano is a permanent lecturer in the Department of English Philology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). After finishing a BA in Classical Philology and a BA in English Philology, she earned in 2004 a PhD in English Linguistics which was recognized with the UAM Distinguished Dissertation Award. Her research interests are principally in theoretical and comparative syntax, with Germanic generally and German in particular being areas of specific interest. Her past work has focused on word-order variation and information structure, two topics that have also been at the core of several research projects in second language acquisition Gema Chocano has taken part in.
