I am a CNRS researcher (chargée de recherche 1ère classe) at Laboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes (LLING UMR 6310).

I received my PhD from the University of Nantes in 2009, with a dissertation on polarity and epistemic indefinites in Romanian. Between 2011 and 2014, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of the Basque Country in Vitoria-Gasteiz and a member of the Basque Research Group of Theoretical Linguistics (HiTT).

My research focuses on formal semantics and its interfaces. I have worked on negative and positive polarity, as well as free choice phenomena, dealing primarily with epistemic indefinites in Romance. Other topics investigated include epistemic future and modality, imperatives, negative concord, and alternative-based semantics. For more details and downloadable papers, check my Publications page.
