Curriculum Vitæ


I am a CANDOC in the WHISF project (wh-in-situ in French), in which I focus on syntactic, semantic and prosodic aspects of interrogatives in French.


I obtained my BA and my MA at the department of linguistics at the university of Nantes, France (, where I worked on the syntax/semantics interface. My 1st year MA thesis concerned the different readings of the and morpheme of conjunction, and in my 2nd year MA thesis I proposed a compositional analysis of French deverbal nouns and ambiguous adjectives such as gros fumeur. Both theses were supervised by Orin Percus.

I began my PhD in Geneva in september 2015. My supervisor is Giuliano Bocci, and my co-supervisor Ur Shlonsky.
