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

I’m interested in semantics, pragmatics and child language acquisition. My research focuses on modality, more specifically on 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 was lucky enough to work with Benjamin Spector and Emmanuel Chemla. I then spent a year as a Course Lecturer at McGill University in Montréal.

My fantastic cohort members are Sigwan ThiviergeMina Hirzel, Aaron Doliana, Rodrigo Ranero and Tyler Knowlton.
