Research Interests

My main research interests include comparative diachronic and synchronic morphosyntax of the Romance languages (especially Italo-Romance varieties), syntactic theory and historical linguistics. I am working on topics such as diachronic and synchronic complementation, complementizer systems, auxiliary selection and split intransitivity, past participle agreement, word order, interrogative force, modality, factivity, differential object marking and parametric variation.
