Short Curriculum:
I specialize in Romance linguistics and in the history and structure of the Romance languages, in particular Italian, Sicilian, and other dialects of Italy. I studied at the Universities of Siena and Cambridge. My doctorate (Cambridge, 2008/2009) was on the interaction between syntax and pragmatics and on the correspondences between word order alternations and interpretive effects in Romance, within a cartographic approach to syntactic structures. From April 2009 to December 2010, I worked at the University of Oxford as a Research Assistant on the AHRC-funded project 'Autonomous Morphology in Diachrony: comparative evidence from the Romance languages' (Principal Investigator: Professor Martin Maiden). At the University of Oxford I also acted as a temporary lecturer in 'The History of the Italian Language' and 'Romance Linguistics' for the academic year 2009-2010. I currently work at the University of Manchester as a Research Associate on the AHRC-funded project 'Existential constructions: An investigation into the Italo-Romance dialects' (Project Investigator: Dr Delia Bentley).
