I am an Assistant Professor in the Linguistics Department at the University of Toronto. I am also a collaborator researcher (pesquisadora colaboradora) in the Anthropology Department at Museu Nacional (UFRJ).
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 in Brazilian indigenous languages.
