Current position

I am currently a research assistant in French linguistics at the Romanisches seminar of the University of Zurich. I am also a visiting researcher at the University of Geneva (CUI), sponsored by the Swiss National Science Foundation (September 2015 - August 2016).

FNRS granted my research on accents of French spoken in Belgium. I'll join the VALIBEL team (Université catholique de Louvain) on the 1st of September 2016!
