Dr. Azkarai obtained her PhD in 2013 within the program 'Language Acquisition in Multilingual Settings' with a dissertation entitled "Gender and Task Modality in EFL Task-based Interaction". The dissertation was supervised by Prof. María del Pilar García Mayo and was awarded the "Outstanding Thesis Award 2012/2013 Academic Year".

She has been awarded a three-year post/doctoral fellowship from the Basque Government. This fellowship has given her the opportunity to conduct a three-year research project at Curtin University (Australia) with Professor Rhonda Oliver and with Professor Maria del Pilar Garcia Mayo at the University of the Basque Country.

Dr. Azkarai currently analyzes the language learning opportunities available to young English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners during task-based interaction. She focuses on different factors that might have an impact on these language learning opportunities, such as gender, age and instructional setting. This project will offer information about different interactional processes used by young learners and will provide pedagogical guidelines to improve their communicative competence.
