My name is Mariana Montes (boringly, in IPA: [ma’rja:na ‘montes]) and I am a Doctor in Linguistics discovering new passions in R, R Markdown and Data visualization.
I studied Italian Language and Literature at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Argentina, where I’m from) and graduated in 2016 with a thesis on metaphorical usage of temperature terms in Italian. The degree is a “Licenciatura”, which takes 5 years and counts as both Bachelor and Master. Towards the end of 2017 I came to Belgium and started the path I’m on now. I defended mi PhD at KU Leuven on September 21, 2021.
Next to the academic and virtual lives I enjoy aikido and iaido, walking in green spaces, reading and baking. I also drink mate (🧉), a lot, and it’s very much part of who I am.
