My research interests lie in the domains of experimental linguistics and psycholinguistics. Specifically, I am interested in the investigation of phenomena pertaining to syntax, semantics, and pragmatics through the implementation of theoretically informed, carefully constructed experimental protocols. In recent years, I have worked extensively on the investigation of two phenomena: referential (pronoun) production and interpretation, and elliptical constructions (mainly gapping).
Besides this experimental approach, another important aspect of my research is to conduct cross-linguistic comparisons that would help us gain insight into language-independent vs. language-specific processes. Some of the languages that I have worked on in my research are: English, French, German, Italian, Romanian, and Spanish.
In addition to this, I am also interested in investigating certain linguistic phenomena through the comparison of native and non-native (L2-learners) populations. My research projects within the fields of L2 acquisition and processing include the investigation of grammatical gender marking and agreement, and pronoun interpretation.
