About myself


I graduated from the University of Lyon 2 where on December 2013 I receieved my PhD degree in Linguistics under the supervision of Prof. Denis Creissels.

In 2017, I finished my one-year postdoctoral research at the University of Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Balthasar Bickel.


I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in the ERC project Grammatical Universals,
leading by Prof. Martin Haspelmath at the University of Leipzig.
