I’m an Ingénieure de Recherche CNRS in the Linguistics Lab in Nantes (UMR6310, Laboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes). My research focuses primarily on language acquisition and language processing.

My recent projects include the incremental processing of aspect in French (using the eye-tracking methodology), a collaboration with Francesca Foppolo and Angeliek van Hout.

I have also worked on children’s understanding of logical expressions (i.e. disjunction, negation) and their interaction (collaboration with Elena Pagliarini, Teresa Guasti, Angeliek van Hout, Balazs Suranyi, Lilla Pintér and Stephen Crain) and on the crosslinguistic interpretation of simple disjunction in downward entailing contexts (joint work with Anamaria Falaus and Francesca Panzeri).

My Ph.D dissertation, completed at the University of Nantes, investigated the acquisition of tense in subordinate clauses in French child grammar.
