María’s PhD (2011) on metalinguistics, writing and constructive error perception commemorated 20 years in Europe.

Her undergrad work in French and Contemporary International Relations (UC Berkeley 1984-88) included an honor’s thesis on immigrant language education in the California Community Colleges while her Master’s in Applied Linguistics (UC Davis 1989-1991) was based on further work with the California Department of Education. Teaching at UC Davis, in Madrid, and Oporto preceded her current work at the School of Technology and Management at the Polytechnic Instituto of Guarda.

She has presided over Aprolínguas (2004-2014) and currently the Network Association of Language Centers in Portuguese HE (ReCLes.pt, 2009-present). An expert consultant for the DAAD in Germany on HE (2015-2018), she also participates on the coordinating council of the European Association of Language Centers in HE (CercleS, 2010-present).
