I’m a Humanities Teaching Fellow at The University of Chicago. I recently got my PhD, with a dissertation entitled “The Silence of Syntax: A theory of ellipsis licensing and identity”. Before coming to Chicago, I completed a BA in Literature and Linguistics at the University of Buenos Aires.

I focus on syntax, its interfaces, and experimental linguistics. My research interests include ellipsis, islands, resumptive pronouns, and nominal morphology, among others. I mainly work on Spanish and Hungarian.
