Dr. Senn completed her PhD in Spanish Linguistics at the University of Ottawa in 2008. With the aim of revising the characterization of the term “near-native speaker”, her PhD dissertation investigated two constructions that evidence “unstable” areas of the Spanish language: Resumptive Pronouns in ambiguous Restrictive Relative Clauses, and Optional Dative Clitic Doubling. In 2009, Cristina joined the Department of Critical Studies at the University of British Columbia-Okanagan, where she works as a Spanish Lecturer and as a DELE examiner.
