About me

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Cognitive Studies (DEC) at École Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris. I am working on the project Between Language and Reasoning led by Salvador Mascarenhas. We are looking at the influence of pragmatic factors on different types of illusory inferences (fallacies) associated with disjunction, modals and indefinites in children and adults.

Before that I was a postdoctoral researcher of the project "ObTrEx- Obligatory Triggers -- Experimental Evidence" (led by Sigrid Beck) which is part of the Priority Programme xprag.de. We investigated the obligatory insertion of presuppositions triggers in different contexts and syntactic environments. Most of my work focused on the insertion of additive particles and the relation to exhaustivity, as well as competition between definite and indefinite determiner.

Recent and upcoming presentations
