My field is theoretical linguistics and my work is set against Noam Chomsky’s nativist approach to human language. My research has so far focussed on Romance comparative syntax, Italian and French linguistics, creolistics, dialectology, syntactic theory, and linguistic change. I have a doctoral dissertation on Northern Italian wh-questions from the University of Geneva (Switzerland), and I am now working on the morphosyntax of cleft questions in the Romance languages at the University of Cambridge (UK), under the supervision of Professor Adam Ledgeway.

Detailed information on my current research available here: http://p3.snf.ch/project-184384 and under ‘TFSoInC’ (Research Projects).
