Hi! I’m a second year PhD student in Linguistics at McGill University. Most of my research focuses on aspects of the syntax and semantics of Chuj, a Mayan language spoken in Guatemala and Mexico. I have also worked on Kaqchikel, another Mayan language spoken in Guatemala, and on Québécois, my native language. Apart from research in theoretical linguistics, I like to contribute to efforts of documentation, think about good fieldwork methodologies, look at typological facts, and I aspire to eventually participate in the development of pedagogical material in Chuj.
