I'm a second year PhD student in linguistics at MIT. I am interested in anything anaphoric, in pronouns, definite descriptions, and demonstratives. I also like to think about the semantics of tense and aspect as well as gradability.

Language-wise, I have a soft spot for Arabic languages (literal and dialects) and my native language, French.

After completing a BSc in math, where I studied formal language theory, I did part of a MSc in cognitive science in Paris, where I was advised by Benjamin Spector, before coming to the US to start a PhD in linguistics.
