Linguistics Department, University of Geneva.
I am a semanticist (the syntactician type of semanticist), and a post-doctoral researcher in computational linguistics
at the University of Geneva.
I became a member of the Computational Linguistics
and Computational Learning (CLCL) research group in the university of Geneva in August 2013, working with
Professor Paola Merlo.
I defended my PhD in linguistics in June 2013, at the University of Southern California where I trained under the supervision of
Professor Hagit Borer (Advisor),
Professor Roumyana Pancheva (Co-chair),
Professor Irene Heim,
Professor Audrey Li, and
Professor Kevin van Bladel.
During my PhD, I have spent a year as a visiting research associate at
Queen Mary University of London in 2013, and a semester as
a visiting PhD student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
in 2011 (under the supervision of
Professor Sabine Iatridou).
Current and past research topics:
My research over the last 5 years has focused on the syntax and semantics of DPs, with
special attention to numeral containing DPs.
My dissertation, entitled "Where number lies", investigates the structure
and interpretation of numeral containing DPs.
I argue that numerals have more than one merger site in the DP, and that a numeral
containing DP receives a collective or distributive interpretation depending on
the merger site of the numeral.
