Gabriel Martínez Vera


About me

I am a postdoctoral research at the Institute for Romance Languages and Literatures at Goethe Universität in Frankfurt am Main. I hold a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Connecticut (UConn Linguistics). My research interests lie in morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, as well as their interfaces (including the syntax-prosody interface) and bilingualism. My research has focused on Romance and Andean languages. I'm also an affiliated member of the Bilingualism and Language Contact Lab at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)
