I am a CNRS researcher (chargée de recCNRS picherche 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 (UPV/EHU) and a member of the Basque Research Group of Theoretical Linguistics (HiTT).

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