I have been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders, Department of Cognitive Science at Macquarie University since July 2016. In November 2017 I will begin a Senior Research Fellowship at Western Sydney University.
My research focuses on the acquisition of syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. My projects investigate children’s perceptive and productive knowledge of different kinds of sentence structures, their understanding of logical expressions like negation and disjunction, and their ability to make inferences that go beyond literal meanings.
Prior to moving to Australia, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique (LINGUAE group) at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. I completed my PhD in Linguistics at the University of Connecticut in 2013.
