I’m a third year PhD student in Linguistics at McGill University. Most of my research focuses on aspects of the syntax, semantics, and prosody of Chuj, a Mayan language spoken in Guatemala and Mexico. I’ve also worked on Kaqchikel, another Mayan language spoken in Guatemala, and on Québécois, my native language. Apart from research in theoretical linguistics, I’m interested in language documentation,  ethical fieldwork methodologies, linguistic typology, and I aspire to eventually participate in the development of pedagogical material in Chuj.
