Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Linguistics Department (as of July 2017) and in the Spanish and Portuguese Department at the University of Toronto. I am also an Assistant Professor (Professora Adjunta) in the Linguistics Department at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (currently on leave).
My work integrates theoretical and experimental research. I am specialized in language documentation, formal semantics, and psycholinguistics, with an emphasis on language acquisition. Currently, I have been involved in a number of experimental studies that investigate the semantics of reference and quantification in Brazilian Portuguese and in Brazilian indigenous languages.
