I was born and raised in Treviso, in the Venetan mainland, Italy. I have a younger brother, two children, a bunch of dreams and more books than shelves. I love food, yoga, flowers, oversized pullovers, still wines, free diving and syntax…not necessarily in this order. I have a wonderful family of which I am very proud.
I used to be a professional volleyball player, but that’s another story…
I hold a BA in Lingue e Letterature Straniere and an MA in Theoretical Linguistics from the Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia (Italy). In 2017, I completed a Certificat de Spécialisation en Linguistique from the University of Geneva (Switzerland), where I also obtained my doctorate in General Linguistics in 2019. My doctoral dissertation on the morphosyntax of Romance interrogatives is freely downloadable here.
I am currently a visiting researcher at the University of Cambridge, Department of Italian, and a College Research Associate at St. John’s College (UK).
