My areas of expertise are semantics and pragmatics. My recent Marie Curie project (PIEF-GA-2013-622311, September 2014-September 2016) investigated the expression of modality in the determiner domain.  Building on this project, my current research agenda aims to situate modal determiners in a typology of modal expressions, by undertaking a systematic comparison between determiner and verbal modality. My increased interest in the expression of modality across categories has led me to organize an international peer-reviewed workshop on this topic, which took place at Pompeu Fabra University in November 2015.
