My main research lines focus on Catalan language and its variation, both synchronic and diachronic, especially in the realm of syntax. In this regard, comparison with other Romance languages (Spanish, French, Italian, Aragonese, Asturian, Occitan) is also paramount in my studies. Finally, I am also interested in the comparison and contrast between Romance languages and a typologically unralted language such as Basque.

At the moment I am a postdoctoral researcher at Sorbonne Université (Paris) and, since June 2021, I am also enjoying a Humboldt Fellowpship for Senior Researchers, which allows me to develop my research project Differential Object Marking in Catalan at Universität zu Köln (Germany). Before that, I was a researcher and teacher at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, with a postdoctoral fellowship Juan de la Cierva-incorporación, provided by the Spanish Government (years 2018 and 2019), I worked at the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique in Bayonne, with a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship Beatriu de Pinós provided by the Generalitat of Catalonia (years 2016 and 2017), and I also spent two months as a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom (2017).
