About


I’m a PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at The University of Chicago.  I’m currently working on my dissertation, co-chaired by Karlos Arregi and Jason Merchant. I’m also associated with the Language Processing Lab directed by Ming Xiang. 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.
