I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Language Evolution at the University of Edinburgh, working with Jenny Culbertson .

I have defended my Ph.D Understanding semantic ambiguities in June 2018, which I did under the supervision of Benjamin Spector and Emmanuel Chemla at the École Normale Supérieure. My thesis combines experimental and theoretical approaches to explore how humans understand and process ambiguous sentences involving plural expressions.

General research interests: Psycholinguistics, Semantics, Pragmatics, Quantification, Plurals, Ambiguity resolution, Reasoning, Processing, Universals.
