dsc01536I’m a fifth year PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Maryland, College Park. My advisors are Valentine Hacquard and Alexander Williams.

I’m interested in experimental semantics and pragmatics, with a focus on child language acquisition. My research focuses on modality, more specifically the interaction between modals, tense and aspect from a developmental perspective. I’m a (proud!) member of the ModSquad, the UMD/NYU Modality Group.

Before coming to UMD for my PhD, I studied at the CogMaster in Paris where I’ve been working with Benjamin Spector and Emmanuel Chemla. I then spent a year as a Course Lecturer at McGill University in Montréal.

My cohort members at UMD are Sigwan ThiviergeMina Hirzel, Aaron Doliana, Rodrigo Ranero and Tyler Knowlton. I’m working with Annemarie van Dooren and Ailís Cournane on several collaborative projects.
