I am an Assistant Professor of Hispanic Linguistics in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Indiana University Bloomington. Prior to this position I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Romance Languages at UNC-Chapel Hill and before that I worked as a Lecturer (US Assist. Professor) at the University of Liverpool. In 2008-2010 I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Linguistics Department at Stanford University. I obtained my Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics from the Ohio State University in 2007, with a dissertation intitled "The meaning of approximative adverbs: Evidence from European Portuguese". Before I decided to study Linguistics, I was interested in Latin and Greek; I obtained a B.A. in Classical Languages and Portuguese from the University of Coimbra, Portugal.
