About me

I’m a PhD candidate in Cognitive Sciences in the Vasishth’s Lab, at the University of Potsdam, in Germany. I am currently working on computational models of sentence processing in aphasia, within the project B02 of the SFB 1287 - Limits of Variability in Language. In my research I use Bayesian methods and the cognitive architecture ACT-R.

Previously, I completed a MA in English Linguistics at Paris Diderot University (CLILLAC-ARP EA 3967 lab), and I was a visiting student at NYU Linguistics in 2017-2018. During this period, my research mainly focused on lexical and syntactic complexity in learners of English, and on crosslinguistic transfers in multilingual learners. I also worked on the statistical modeling of relativizer choices among French learners of English (under the supervision of Nicolas Ballier. Prior to that, I completed a BA on English and French Philology at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in Spain.
