Third-year PhD student of the Hispanic Linguistics progam
- Dr. Tim Gupton (advisor)

My main research interests are:
- Theoretical linguistics (more specifically, comparative morphosyntax)
- Formal diachronic change/Diachronic generative syntax (i.e., Grammaticalization through the eyes of the Minimalist Program)
- The morphosyntax of clitics in Galician
- Grammaticalization and parameter change in the morphosyntax of medieval Romance
"Unha mirada cara a u e onde n’As Cantigas de Santa María: un traballo cuantitativo"
- “Exaptation in Western Romance: giving rise to the Galician IFS” (Submitted for review)
- “Verbless DP interrogative constructions and enclisis in Galician”
- “Syntactic limitations of clitic determiners”
My main research interests deal with the (morpho)syntax of superfluous clitics in Galician and Spanish. I also study historical texts and am very interested in the sociolinguistic elements of the diachronic linguistics side of said languages.
