My main interests lie in the syntax of Italo-Romance varieties, and I have worked on a number of topics mainly within the Cartographic approach. I am particularly interested in the Syntax-Pragmatics interface and in Information Structure. Since coming to Oxford I have developed a keen interest in Typology and Historical Syntax, with a focus on Grammaticalization. Other areas of interest include agreement, first language acquisition and the diachrony of the Italian dialects. See the Publications and Manuscripts section for more information.
