Nowadays growing up in a bilingual environment is becoming the norm rather than the exception. However, there are still some prevalent myths about what being bilingual really is. Are bilingual babies arriving more slowly to their developmental milestones? Or are they “smarter” than their monolingual peers?

Loreto has a B.S. in Psychology, and was always curious about how the human mind and brain worked. When she researched what her professors were working on in regards to language learning in infants, she was fascinated and applied to the Master’s program in Neuroscience.



Currently, she is a PhD researcher in Language Acquisition of Bilingual Infants at Babylab of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, focused on development of categorization abilities during a child’s first months of life. She is especially interested in the development of these abilities in bilingual infants, taking both electrophysiological (EEG) as well as behavioral (Eye-tracker) measurements. She has been a visiting student at the Humboldt University in Berlin, the Central European University in Budapest, and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
