…University Of Buenos Aires…
…Currently finishing my Linguistics degree at the University of Buenos Aires (MA-equivalent)….

I study Linguistics at the University of Buenos Aires. I’m currently attending my last semester but I’m also teaching Grammar to new students. I’m part of a funded Statistics research group and a Computational Linguistics study group. My main research topic at the time is inflectional morphology acquisition; I’m trying to assess how well formal theories of morphological competence explain the behaviour observed in children during the process of language acquisition. To do this, I combine corpus studies with computational simulation and statistical modelling. In my spare time, I like to grab my bike and go for a ride.

I study Anthropology at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), where I have also volunteered as a student tutor. I am interested in computer assisted design and its application in archaeological research and outreach, as the three-dimensional reconstruction of findings and excavation surfaces. I work in the Historical Museum of La Matanza (Buenos Aires Province, Argentina) as an assistant technician. Besides surveying the museum backyard, I engage in outreach activities and also perform as a guide for the Pleistocene-megafauna exhibition. My current research topics are related to historical artifacts, from glassware to floor tiles, collected both in the Museum backyard and La Elvira site (see my publications), and also the prehispanic pottery technology found in La Matanza river shores (unpublished).

MemberEdmundo Murray

I research and write about Irish-Latin American relations, artwork in the international organizations, and links between food and music. Born in Argentina, I studied agronomy and became aware of the amazing complexity of the biological environments in which we live in. Then I worked in the corporate world in the United States and in Latin America. I acquired first-hand knowledge of how capitalist values work in the real world. After moving to Europe, I joined an international organization in Geneva (the WTO) as publishing manager. As co-founder of the Society for Irish Latin American Studies (SILAS) and the first editor of its journal I was able to study trans-Atlantic migrations, especially the Irish in Latin America. During a period as invited professor at University of Cape Verde, I edited a multi-author collection of essays about the relations between food and music. More recently, I researched and published works about the history of architecture and works of art in the Centre William Rappard of Geneva. In the near future, I hope to study the culture and practice the music of the Gnawa people in Essaouira, Morocco (cover image: “In GATT We (T)rust” by Claude Namy, 1966).
