About me

I’m a research assistant and PhD Candidate in Cognitive Sciences in the Vasishth’s Lab, at the University of Potsdam, in Germany. I am currently working on computational modeling of sentence processing difficulties in aphasia, within the project SFB 1287 Limits of Variability in Language. 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 for the academic year 2017-2018.

During the first year of my MA, my research mainly focused on lexical and syntactic complexity in learner English, and on crosslinguistic transferences in multilingual learners. During the second year of my master, I worked on the statistical modeling of relativizer choices among French learners of English (under the supervision of Nicolas Ballier and Detmar Meurers).

Prior to that, I completed a BA on English & French Philology at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in Spain. You can download my CV from here.
