My research focuses on the syntax and semantics of  Ktunaxa, a language isolate spoken in interior BC and parts of Montana and Idaho, and exclamative constructions in Québec French. For both Ktunaxa and Québec French, I am interested in the relation between the syntax of clause typing and speech acts, and I hope that my research contributes to the modelling of the interfaces between syntax and semantics, and syntax and pragmatics. Otherwise, I am passionate about contemporary dance, yoga and everything movement related.
